Listener comments!

  8:12pm Rynac:

Time to Tango!
  8:13pm Caryn:

We Finns do love to tango!
  8:14pm Danne D:

Yay :)
As I've dodged the Potholes of New Jersey highways on Mondays Bethany's show has kept keep me a little calmer :)
  8:16pm adam:

awesome show ... thanks Bethany ... glad we got you on WFMU .... greetings from grand rapids michigan
  8:16pm Jim:

Do you have any Olavi Virta on your tango CD?
  8:17pm Ike:

Bethany, at around 7:02, I'm pretty sure you announced this is the 2002 fundraising marathon. So, I guess I've fallen through a hole in the space-time radio continuum. :/
  8:17pm ranjit:

  8:18pm Caryn:

Is she going to get to the polar bears at some point? Right now it's just eskimo-bashing.
  8:18pm 12539:

(Ike, that was actually around 8:02, so you really did fall through something.)
  8:20pm Jim:

A terrific old 60 Minutes piece on Finland and the tango is at youtu.be/qhxZoV3t61c .
  8:20pm Ike:

You're right, 12539! Did this wormhole take me to Des Moines?
  8:21pm G in Brooklyn:

Holy crap, I was born in Fenton. It has under 10,000 people in it.
  8:23pm Danne D:

Under 9,999 since you're in Brooklyn, G
  8:24pm G in Brooklyn:

Current population, Danne. I moved from Fenton to England in 1971 when the Fenton population was maybe 4-5K.
  8:24pm Mitten John:

G!!!!!! in Brooklyn!!!!!!
  8:26pm Caryn:

@Jim: at one point, "Tango Finlandia" was the most repeated "60 Minutes" segment of all time. Don't know if the record still stands...
  8:26pm G in Brooklyn:

Mitten John is from Fenton. Wtf! Mitten meaning Michigan.

Do you have email contact info or whatnot? If you're interested...
  8:30pm Rynac:

Best Tango movie? . . ."Tango Bar" with Raul Julia - 1988
  8:40pm david:

B sounds semi-deranged this evening, perfect for marathon
  8:40pm Danne D:

.05 x 2million = $100,000 :)
  8:44pm Jim:

Caryn, Morley Safer also did a story on tourism in Yalta that was the funniest piece I've ever seen on 60 Minutes. I wish it were on YouTube, but I've never been able to find it.
  8:44pm Danne D:

Okay so this show is A440.
In honor of the letter A, if Bethany gets $1 for every artist beginning with "A" in the Artist/Band Browser in the archives that would be $1020 :)
  8:44pm Danne D:

  8:45pm Danne D:

it'd be 10 cents per "A" artist to get to $1020.
  8:46pm Danne D:

Most stations out there don't play 10,200 different songs. At FMU, that's just the artists and that's just the Letter "A"!
  8:48pm Caryn:

We're still a very tango-loving country, Bethany.
  8:51pm G:

"The tango is a pantomime coitus for the camera," as the founder of Futurism Marinetti wrote a century ago...
  8:56pm mrmucho:

one of the very best Waits songs!
  9:02pm Danne D:

keep pledging folks :) Catch you all later!
Great Job Bethany and Jeffrey :)
