“Jamas se olvidaba de los bailarines.
Algo importante de Pichuco,
When he had a large number of new songs in his repertoire, on rehearsal days, he would summon a couple of dancers to play those songs and have the couple dance to them, to find out if what he was playing could be danced to on the floor.
He had great respect, above all, for the couples who came to dance.”
