Corazón Tanguero, Recorded Live Sat. 2/3, 4:15 p: Just like wine, tango can refresh as well as age, it dies and is reborn with each new generation adding its distinctive flavor.  Rodolfo Zanetti brings forth both the new and the old from every corner of his bandoneón: the ancestral from his Mendocino  homelands to the refreshing morning chill of the Andean highlands.

Sat. 20/1, 4:15p: From Perugia (Italy), an interview with Prof. Alberto Bustos hosted by Cristina Baccin about his composition,  “Misa Tango” (Tango Mass), that presents the Catholic Mass through all the tango genres. It´s a courageous combination of prayer and the sensuality of tango's deeply rooted forbidden past –especially by the Argentinian Catholic Church-, with its origins in the brothels on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.
