Loving the podcasts from Ted Mills in the Funk Zone!
Thank you, Ted, for bringing entertaining and informative interviews with such a diverse group of talented people in our area! Keeping it fun in the Funk Zone!!
I stumbled upon Ted Mills' podcast and am so glad that I did. His conversations with artists are open and engaging. They remind those of us who-are-not-artists-but-love-art that you don't have to be an expert to get out and enjoy the art and artists in our community. Bravo!
