Accordion Noir Radio playlist 2008-04-25: Home Sweet Home

April 23, 2018

87_cover_front.jpg

It’s the start of a new week and with it, another selection from the Accordion Noir Classic archives from ten years back.  (“Selection” doesn’t really do it justice when what we mean is really “here’s the show we aired closest to 10 years ago on this date.”  We don’t get to choose!)  It was episode number 74 of our weekly broadcast, and we’d just come through a tour de force Spring Member Drive… this let us relax a little bit with our customary mix of many different styles from many different locales.  At its original online home it racked up some 3391 recorded “listens” … hopefully it will gather a few more at its new, forever online home over here.  To help point the way, here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir: Playlist: April 25th, 2008, Home Sweet Home show

This episodes “cover” is… My new old Hohner. How old you say? Maybe 1920?

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-04-11: Spring Sprang

April 12, 2018

Accordion

Spring has sprang and with the change in the weather (and then the change, and then the change… isn’t April grand?) comes a new mood winning over the heart of Accordion Noir programmer Bruce.  Specifically, he seems to have been satisfied with his grand gesture all through March, and has once again assented to include accordion playing by men in our playlists. We’ll see if this isn’t just a phase.  You can enjoy digital audio of the complete hour-long program of accordion music we aired last night — under 12 hours ago — by visiting this link… and to help enrich your enjoyment, please refer to the following playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-04-11: Pan-African Accordion!

April 11, 2018

85_cover_front

We’d built up to it — Accordion Noir radio episode number 72, dating to April 11th of the year 2008.  Not just any episode, not just featuring our usual eclectic mix — instead, it was a member drive special, featuring an entire program built around sharing the multiple faces of accordion music around the continent of Africa.  (And between you and me, it’s clear that one hour was just scraping the surface!  Though it’s been put off ten years already, we clearly need to revisit this theme in the not-so-distant future.)

At its original online home it was enjoyed some 3770 times, but we hope that future generations of Afro-cordion scholars will enjoy our groundwork enjoying the sounds of this continent over at the Internet Archive.  Now here, to help enhance your listening discovery, is its playlist:

From the back vaults of accordion history, here’s episode number 71 of Accordion Noir Radio from way back in April of 2008, when we were getting serious about our annual fundraising obligations to our parent radio station CFRO Co-Op Community Radio 100.5 fm.  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 15472 times, but with your help I bet we can meet or beat that total over the next ten years up at its new online home.  And to entice you over there to have a good listen, here’s the episode’s playlist:
