A year-long tango listening project

A year-long tango listening project: "Danceable Tangos of the Year" has 52 episodes, so you can get a fairly good sense of Argentine tango music between 1927 and 2016 by spending one hour per week listening to the series. It took me a year to complete all episodes. The series originally aired on in 2016 as a weekly special programming aiming to showcase examples of danceable Argentine tangos, valses and milongas. Thus "Danceable Tangos of the Year" is a year-long project in multiple senses of the word.

Since "Danceable Tangos of the Year" have already concluded I created a stable url for it here:

Note: minor changes I made in the description of the episodes may cause some type of podcast feeds to reload, to reorder the episodes and/or to display incorrect date for airing; apologies if this causes any inconvenience.

Argentine Tango Radio: 2016 in numbers

During 2016, the first full year of, we reached slightly more than one million tango lovers, who on average listened to the stream for around half hour per listening. Audience size have skyrocketed in recent months: in December 2016 alone we had more than 175,000 listeners. (Previous stats and some lamentation about costs can be read here.)

“Danceable Tangos of the Year” also recently concluded with Episode 52; the podcast version received an additional 18,000 listening from those who missed the online show. This year I started to rebroadcast the episodes starting with Episode 01 on the 2nd of January; it will air on Mondays and Wednesdays, as usual.

Happy new year and happy listening!
