Our first episode of the Keepin' It Local Podcast. We talked with Tim Hall, Carrie Riepenhoff & Mike Conley about Hall's upcoming Supper Club Series event, "Revisit 1977," featuring Sunny Taylor, Alicia Pyle, and Mike Conley. It will be held at the Philmore on Broadway on March 23.
Alicia never thought she wanted to be a music teacher, but later found out teaching is an integral part of any music career. It turns out that's a good thing, both for the Fort Wayne music scene and for individual musicians.

The Allen County SPCA hosted another "Growl at the Moon" fundraiser at the Grand Wayne Center last month. After the event, Alicia sat down with her Uncle Kent Pyle, the president of the board, to talk about his role.
