JUAN MAGLIO is born. Nicknamed Pacho. Bandoneonist, conductor and composer. He was a typical character of the Guardia Vieja. He was the first one to obtain a commercial success with the recordings. In 1912 he was the most sold with his quartet (bandoneon, violin, flute and guitar). When people wanted to buy a tango record they would say: give me a Pacho. Here goes a Pacho by him.
