Tango Train: a Tango-Lesson, a Valentine, and a Birth-Announcement!

Extra-special, extra-looong, instalment of Accordion Noir with special guests: Ariel "Scissor-kick" Marsh, expert in tangology by acclaim, and strong-silent-type "Wyoming" Johnny Lyon of the Creaking Planks!

This is sometimes one of the sillier discussions of the dignified Tango I have ever heard. Hope nobody comes after us.
