June 24 marked the 86th anniversary of that terrible episode in Medellin, (Colombia), where the singer Carlos Gardel lost his life along with a large part of his entire entourage. The organization GARDEL SIGLO XX of CG Emprendimientos together with TANGUERA RADIO, a multiplatform communication medium that broadcasts tango and culture to the world 24 hours a day, made a memorial dedicated to the artist who changed the history of tango. In his memory, a (podcast) is presented by the station's Programming and Institutional Directorate, under the coordination and idea of Saide Abdalá who conducted an interview with the historian Pablo Di Tomaso, who until 2020 was Director of the Municipal Historical Museum of Cañada de Gómez in the Province of Santa Fé, (today current Manager of Anses).
In the note, the historian tells us an unmissable story, testimonial anecdotes of the visits and presentations of Carlos Gardel with his guitarists in the city of Canada where he is always remembered. The singer arrived at the historic station for the first time on January 14, 1930; in turn, he returned to it in 1933, when he was making some presentations in the interior of the country a short time before leaving his beloved Argentina forever.

Vincent is the only son of the always remembered Edmundo “Pucho” Guibourg ““ great friend of Gardel ”. He currently resides with his wife Pilar Thomas in the city of Los Angeles (United States). Last February he turned one hundred years old and today he gives us in his own words the memories that he treasures and keeps latent at the time in his experiences of when he was a child he met Carlos Gardel. In 1927 an important position awaited his father in Paris. Guibourg would be a correspondent for the Argentine newspaper "Critica", so with his family they embarked on an unexpected journey that would change his life, events that marked his youth and are reflected in his valuable memories. that will remain forever in his book "The Gardel that I knew", a request from his father and where Vincent has captured a period that would be transcendental that spans between 1927 and 1938, becoming a Gardel fan who listens live to the broadcast from New York.

Vincent Thomas: He was born in 1921 in Detroit, United States, he lived a large part in Argentina and a period in Paris, he met many personalities in Gardelian history, such as Doña Berta Gardés, Armando Defino, Enrique De Rosas, Pedro Quartucci, Luis Pierotti among others.
