Michael Krugman (1951-2016) was known by tango lovers for his blog with discussions and translations tango lyrics, Tango Decoder
, and later for his research into the advertisements for tango dances and what they revealed, the Tango Time Machine
. He passed away in December 2016 and is terribly missed by those who knew him. I met him in Buenos Aires in April 2015, when we arranged to have a coffee at the Bar Británico
and found a great deal to talk about. Michael was working on a book related to the Tango Time Machine which we agreed I would publish. Sadly, it was never completed.
As Michael’s web pages are now offline, there was a danger that some of this material could be lost. I am therefore (slowly) reproducing the Tango Decoder here.
