El Otro Sur

Locally in Champaign-Urbana we now have our own Argentine radio show.

"El Otro Sur," a show hosted by Franklin Ridgeway, features two hours of Argentine tango and folk music. El Otro Sur airs every Sunday night starting at midnight on WEFT 90.1FM.

Frank plays some really cool music, blending golden age with neo and alterna tango.

I have the odd situation of needing to go out to my car to listen, because I don't have a radio in my house. It is absolutely electrifying to hear Di Sarli, Pugliese, Tanghetto, Carlos Libedinsky, etc. coming over the local radio in my car!! It sounds really great.

I encourage everyone to tune in, because I guarantee you will hear beautiful music that you haven't heard before. Frank Ridgeway is quite eclectic and a determined collector.

I was wondering whether WEFT 90.1FM can be heard over the Internet instead of FM for folks outside of Champaign-Urbana.

Hi Melanie.

As far as I know, WEFT doesn't broadcast on the internet.


PS - It's nice to hear from you. Where are you now?
