AccNoir 2022-01-05

Phew, what an exhausting year! This one also seems likely to offer many of the same challenges that 2021 did… and also, lots of accordion music to help make it all worthwhile! Here we are, sharing the first episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast of 2022, and it looks like the curatorial theme Bruce was angling for in his playlist was squeezy music that was released in the 2021 calendar year.

January 3, 2022

klezcamp

Ten years ago, Bruce was feeling a bit contrarian.  (Er… a bit more contrarian.)  For Christmas, he decided to turn the entire establishment on its head and instead celebrate that most Ashkenazic of musics, the Eastern European Jewish folk music known as klezmer… for three hours!  Oy vey!  Happily, it’s fun stuff to listen to and enjoy, so here without further ado you can listen to hour 1 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s episode 265 of the weekly Accordion Noir radio program.  At its original online home, it logged some 6983 listens, and present and future generations will continue listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-12-29: In the Midst of Ongoing Time

December 30, 2021
AccNoir 2021-12-29

In this week’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, Bruce plays our last Christmas song of the year (“the opener is the last Christmas song, so they don’t have to worry about the rest of the show being too festive”) and we shift gears right into fully agnostic winter mode. “It goes in the middle for a bleak break for police and misogynistic violence … So an uneven midwinter.”  It’s OK, Bruce, in this hemisphere it is the season of darkness, you’re staying on-theme! If your Apple or Android (or plain old RSS) podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist.

“And if people want a 2011 Babes calendar locally I’d announce that.” The thing about the 2011 edition of the amazing Accordion Babes pin-up calendar is that you can re-use the 2011 edition in 2022, as the dates line up with the days of the week in the exact same way. I understand that Bruce may have a couple of surplus copies available, you can look him up if you don’t mind living in the past.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-12-21: Bruce’s faves 2011

December 27, 2021

octoacco

From ten years ago, here’s episode 264 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast.  Ten years ago we devoted the month of December, in which we first started airing, to anniversary and “year-in-review” programming.  The way Bruce celebrated this occasion was usually by airing his favorite accordion music that had been released in that year, or had at least first crossed his desk in that year.  At its original online home, this episode racked up some 7078 listens, and you can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

From… tomorrow night, here’s an episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir show, coming at you from the future, yet to air! Like Ebenezer Scrooge, you’re being visited by the Ghost of Christmas Radio Future. (Don’t worry, Tiny Tim’s interview will go off as planned, but the news hour technician will play the wrong clip.) Bruce threatens (er… promises) “a slightly weirder/less minor-key conniption of holy-and-not-so-holy-day tunes on @CoopRadio, including a preview of @TheTigerLillies new #ChristmasCarol 🪗 🤡🎄 👻 which is due on #AccordionBandcamp Dec 23!” It sounds like a good time as far as seasonal radio goes!
