Late last year a series of technical problems interrupted one interview in particular. It was the interview series with Alex Nodelman and, as the technical issues have since been resolved, next edition I am going to replay that interview in its entirety. Together with some great tango for dancing and a quick round-up of some upcoming dance festivals, that’s this Sunday on Tango Capital, 7:00pm to 8:00pm:
- broadcasting on 2xxfm 98.3 in Canberra,
- streaming live and also on demand from http://www.2xxfm.org.au
