Danceable Tangos of the Year

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.
