ART TAP episode 105

On tap this week… is one of my most valued creative friends, playwright Kelly McBurnette-Andronicos. She was, oddly enough, on the last episode of ART TAP in April of 2020 – the one that convinced me it was too hard to conduct a podcast that way. It wasn’t her fault – it was the logistics that proved too interruptive to me.

ART TAP is now working with Rec Room Recording, a recording studio located in the heart of downtown Lafayette, Indiana within the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.

And the wonderful Brittany and Hans Rees, part of the staff here at Rec Room, are recording us faithfully. ART TAP will at least sound good.
