Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-11-23: Denver Gothic

November 20, 2017

58_cover_front

In today’s selection from our Accordion Noir Classic vaults, we exhume episode number 51, wherein we give the lie to our typical Vancouver bias by giving a focus to airing songs from in and around the alt-accordion Mecca of Denver, Colorado, co-hosted by founding Creaking Planks member Lee Shoal.  At its original online home this episode was enjoyed 14209 times and we hope that it continues to be appreciated at that pace over at its new forever home at the Internet Archive, where you can enjoy listening to it today!  And here, to help enhance your enjoyment… its playlist:

“Denver Gothic” with Guest-star Heather (Lee Shoal from the Creaking-Planks)!

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2017-11-15: Viola Turpeinen Day

November 16, 2017

hqdefault

Greetings and salutations to the squeezebox nation!  Accordion Noir radio host Bruce keeps a calendar full of dates pertinent to forgotten titans of the global accordion scene, which he uses to theme the names of episodes — but, from looking at the playlists, which actually can exert a minimal influence on the content of a given show.  But maybe I missed something!  Here: you can listen to last night’s episode here, which looks like our customary mix of… everything! … and below is the playlist where you can keep track of what you’re hearing:

AccNoir-2017-11-15, Viola Turpeinen & etc. Day

Viljo Mannerjoki’s Accordion Repairs and Restoration (not restaurant)
http://harmonikanrestaurointi.net/?lang=en

Have a go at Viljo’s survey where you can tell him how many reed-blocks your accordion has. I wonder if there will be a lot of “I don’t know” answers? He got 60 responses just today! Available until December 13.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-11-16: Jazz and Ton-a Ton-a Ton-a New Stuff

November 14, 2017

57_cover_front

Apparently for our 50th epidode of Accordion Noir back in November or 2007, we celebrated by skipping an episode… probably we were pre-empted by some other program’s member drive special, it’s all a bit muddy in the hazy, distant past.  The important part is that I have another archival recording (whose then-“new”-ness may have grown somewhat tarnished over the past decade) to share here with you all today!
At its original online home it achieved a kingly total of 15288 listens and we hope that the masses continue enjoying it and all its ilk over at the Internet Archive, where these recordings will continue living on forever (or at least until someone requests that they be taken down.)  So you know just whose names we are trumpeting out into posterity, here’s the playlist for the episode:

From the back annals of Accordion Noir Classic, here’s episode number 49 from way back on November 2nd, 2007!  Despite its somewhat underwhelming thumbnail artwork (we had lower standards back in the MySpace era, but a garmon is always an interesting specimen regardless!), this episode proved to be pretty popular (with some 13359 listens) at its original online home … and we hope that it continues to demonstrate a similar timeless vitality going forward at its new online home at the Internet Archive.  What musical selections lent it such dynamism?  Read on for the playlist!

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2017-11-01: November One

November 2, 2017

umbrellamono

OK, with all that Hallowe’en business behind us we can go forward with embracing our inner November, which (true to Axl Rose) mostly involves being subjected to a great deal of cold rain, at least in these parts.  What is appropriate music to be rained on while listening to?  I don’t have a pithy answer, except to note that due to its range, accordion is appropriate in every weather type and circumstance.  You can listen to last night’s episode over here, and to help make some sense of the amazing sounds entering your ears, here’s the playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-10-28: Taste of Co-op Halloween-ish special!!!

October 30, 2017

54_cover_front

A rump 48th appearance on the air, this was a 20-minute taste of Accordion Noir as part of a drive to expose Co-Op Radio listeners to other programs not part of their regular listening routine.  (Ten years later, of course we’re a regular institution on the calendars of all CFRO listeners!  I’m not sure why the city hasn’t proclaimed a Vancouver Accordion Noir day, it must just be a bureaucratic oversight.)  Also it’s a little bit spooky in deference to the time of year, so if last week’s freaky accordion playlist didn’t quite fill your loot bag, this can help get your Hallowe’en week starting off on the right bony foot.  At its original online home this fragmentary episode was enjoyed some 13355 times … we hope it gets more of that love at its new online home.  Now prepare yourselves — here’s the playlist!

This is where Mark from the Gospel Train show (right before us Friday nights) hosts 20 minute versions of all the other shows on CFRO, and we beg for money for this (really) public radio. If you donate, we’ll give you prizes! (See below, below.)
