After eleven years living, dancing, teaching tango, and writing in Buenos Aires, I came home to L.A. in 2014, where I'm reconstructing my life.

Tango Angeles: Tangocherie's Interview on the Only English-Language Tango Radio Program!

Recently I had the pleasure of being interviewed by radio host and tango DJ Ronaldo on his ground-breaking live radio broadcast and podcast of Tango Angeles on the Universal Broadcasting Network at the historic Sunset-Gower Studios in Hollywood. In between carefully selected recorded music, I answered questions about visiting Buenos Aires (and my tips for a great tango trip), my personal life journey that I related in my memoir, The Church of Tango, and my own story of Ruben's and my "Love in the Space of a Song," one in a continuing series on the program. There was also time to mention my new memoir due to be released soon, Arabesque: Dancing on the Edge in Los Angeles, as well as discussing the ever-controversial codigos and other tango topics.

It was an honor and a privilege to be on the show, the only English-language radio program, which airs every other week on Wednesdays at 6:00-8:00 p.m. Pacific Time. You can download the free podcasts of previous shows here from.iTunes. In between the chatting, Ronaldo plays some fantastic music and explains interesting points about the piece, orchestra, composer, and/or singer.

Meanwhile you can be part of the Tango Angeles community no matter where you live by liking its Facebook page.

Some mistake, I think. Elmira's Tango Tales predates by many years.

Thanks, Chris, for pointing that out. Here's the link to Elmira:
So I'll change the title of my story to "the only English-Language Tango Radio Program" since Elmira ceased to record in 1992, I believe. Is that correct?

Cherie, Elmira's Tango Tales ran on radio until at least Jan 2008, according to the last announcement I received. The most recent show in the archive is dated April 2009.
