Music is often connected with emotions, but what about food? Can a cocktail taste like a song? On Thursday's Central Standard, we spoke with two Kansas City bartenders who recently completed a feat of synesthesia - creating original cocktails inspired by songs from local musicians.  The event was called Mixtapes & Mixology.

Also, on our regular Tell KCUR segment, we heard what our listeners think Kansas City needs.

And, we played a mix of soccer songs sung by international fans who call Kansas City home.
