Taste of Tippecanoe is a music, art, and food fest in Lafayette IN, and has been going for 35 years. It is a major fund raising event for the Tippecanoe Arts Federation(TAF), which advocates for the arts in 14 Indiana counties. Downtown Lafayette fills with food vendors offering tastes of their wares, artists showing off their work, and some of the finest musicians in the Midwest and beyond. We spoke to TAF executive director Tetia Lee, about TAF's mission, thee importance of the funds raised by the Taste, and the job of maintaining and improving the area's arts scene. Ouur other guest, Richard Fudge, spoke about his work with Friends of Bob music co-op, the state of our music scene, and his band, the Prannies, playing their first Taste. We shared a tune from the Prannies' recent release "Do You Mean Panties?" called "Gladiola". Part two will sample more music you'll find at the Taste.
