AccNoir 2020-06-03

g-navar-pandemic_days_3“Pandemic Days #3” by Gabriel Navar

Fresh from the airwaves, here’s tonight’s episode of Accordion Noir radio, an hour of the most pertinent alt-accordion music that the world’s most pre-eminent scholar of the genre can curate.  These are interesting times we’re living in, and Bruce is rising to the occasion, programming a set dedicated to inform and educate as well as entertain, all through the superficially limited medium of accordion music!  If you’re not already subscribed to our weekly broadcast through your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can enjoy listening to this week’s episode via the Internet Archive.  Here’s this week’s playlist:

  Saint Dulce of the Poor, forró accordionist_

painting by Kelly Latimore

This week’s episode of Accordion Noir is, well, the standard heady melange of this and that, where by “this” and “that” we mean another hour of the best alt-accordion music we can rustle up from all corners of the planet, from different eras and in our standard wide variety of styles.  It’s nothing more or less than another grand hour of what you’ve learned to expect from the Accordion Noir brand over the course of over a decade of weekly broadcasts!  If you missed it (and haven’t yet signed up to follow our weekly episodes on your Apple or Android podcast application) you can enjoy listening to a digital audio stream of the episode over here.  Next up, the playlist and a few further remarks from host Bruce:

I know, last week’s curation from the archives offered up our first week at our new time slot ten years ago, but after we debuted in our new spot we still got a chance to bid adieu to our old one.  And here it is, Accordion Noir episode number 180, one of the very few times we’ve had the opportunity to air multiple episodes in the same week!  It featured a couple of special guests sitting in over the telephone lines, and is a fun little sendoff to Friday night.  At its original online home it achieved a logged total of some 7838 listens, but we can continue rebuilding those numbers by listening to it today as digital audio at its new online home over at the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
