In 2009, a new event in Atlanta joined a rich, international tradition. We just have to be careful how we say its name.

The Puckin’ Fuppet Show is a quarterly puppet slam event featuring a wide range of puppetry styles, and — as the name may suggest — is aimed at adult audiences. 

"It is anything goes," curator Beau Brown tells City Lights host Lois Reitzes. He says the show, which he has helmed since 2010, is important for Atlanta's puppetry community.

Tony Taylor started practicing his guitar on Stone Mountain more than 20 years ago. One of his favorite singers is Adele.
