Champaign-Urbana is lucky to have the extremley fine tango radio show at 12-2am on Monday mornings. Tune to 90.1 FM - WEFT. Host Frank Ridgway plays an enthralling mix of Argentine folk and guitar music, classic tango music, Piazzolla, and contemporary neo-tango/rock fusion. Delicious!

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.
