Calendario Milonguero

FRANCISCO BOHIGAS is born. Theater author and lyricist. He shared his time between tango and “sainete”. He also made some forays into tango advertisement. He edited and spread a theme titled APPROVECHÁ LA BOLADA! (Take advantage of it!) sub-titled FUMÁ CARANCHOS (smoke Caranchos, a brand of cigarettes of those times). He left almost 100 themes, most of them forgettable. Here we are listening to one of his few winners.
