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.

Tango #66

I am falling in love
This time with his older brother
oh yes
Why hadn't I noticed before
the musical color of his eyes
that lighthouse of a smile
the livliness of his rhythmic feet
his beautiful arms
that solid, playful, energized embrace
his supremely confident nonchalence
the devastatingly laser-precise syncopations
oh yes
I'm in love all right
with Tango's older brother,

Tango #69

Paradise Found

I fall in love at the drop of a fluid ocho,
a well executed, deeply felt step
sends shivers up my spine.
I fall for the milonguero, the dreamer,
the thinker, the poet,
the cowboy,
the man
who loves dancing tango
this tango
with me
For the length and breadth of our dance
He is my angel other half
as we blend together into such a seamless whole
There is only one angel
dancing a tango so divinely
the gates of heaven swing open
We have discovered the secret password
we are the secret password
to Paradise Found
