On Monday’s Houston Matters: Police Chief Troy Finner joins us to discuss some recent crime trends and other law enforcement issues in the city.

Also this hour: Today is Make Music Day, an annual global celebration of music. It's being held in more than a hundred American cities this year, including – for the first time, formally – the city of Houston. We talk about the important role music and musicians play in the cultural life of our city. Then, we talk with some area musicians and hear them perform. And we listen back to some of our favorite conversations with musicians from the past few years.

And we get an update on Houston sports from Cody Stoots, co-host of the sports podcast In the Group Chat.
