Who said we can't call the glorious years of Tango music a Golden Age?

On the Sydney tango forum someone has written that we do not have a Golden Age of Tango because the term 'never existed while the orchestras you are referring to were performing!' If this reasoning had any basis we would not have a Golden Age of Hollywood, a Golden age of Greece, a Golden Age of couture...Golden Age is a term used to describe a period of prosperity and achievement that leaves a legacy long after it is over.
We do have a Golden Age of Tango music - and without it tango would be very poor. Those are the orchestras that so many of us love to dance to and listen to - and the music that so many of today's tango musicians strive to play.
We did some research on Golden Ages which we've published on TangoAustralia
