Carlos Fanel

January 14, 1943 —

I see Carlos every Sunday morning, either at the radio studio or via internet for the broadcast of Cumbre de Tango and later in the evening at Lo de Celia Tango Club. His playlist is the best of tango, most of which isn’t played on the radio or at milongas. He shares knowledge of orquestas and singers with the world. The program is the only reason I get up early on Sunday morning — I don’t want to miss it.

Last Sunday he mentioned the book, Tango, mezcla milagrosa by Carlos Mina, and shared a part on how many tango lyrics refer to specific places of the city. Those places have a mythical value. For example, portenos know San Juan y Boedo, Corrientes y Esmeralda, Rivadavia y Rincon, etc., all street corners of the city.
