Accordion Revolution Video Book, Preface, pg 1-3 (Remastered!)

March 25, 2020

Accordion historian Bruce Triggs here, figuring I’d read my book Accordion Revolution aloud since we’re all sitting around home (Corona Virus 2020) and I’ve been wanting to do an audio book eventually. Consider this a preview, with lots of mistakes, especially when I start mispronouncing names (subscribe and laugh at future chapters)! If you have corrections or suggestions, let me know. (Note that if I do a polished version I’m going to hire native speakers to coach me on their languages.)

The book is available in print and ebook formats at AccordionRevolution.com

I’m offering this somewhat ridiculous public reading to keep busy while we #StayHome. I hope it’s amusing, maybe helps people sleep 😴, or inspires you to do something legitimately productive. And honestly, if I get to finish it, we may have successfully overcome this crisis. πŸ™πŸ½

I’m 52 with asthma, so if I get sick I might die. If you hang out with me in person, you might die too or get permanent lung damage while making other people sick. Let’s not get sick and die from not taking this disease seriously. 😷

So join the Accordion Revolution, read along if you’ve got a copy (the eBook is on sale for $1 until April!), and keep breathing. Add jokes about accordion bellows and ventilators in the comments. Hope they stay funny.

If we work together: We’ll all see the #AccordionEmoji πŸͺ— I worked pretty hard to get approved last year. It’s not on phones as I write this in March. But if you see it here πŸͺ—, I hope you’re doing alright.

If you’re not tired of me yakkin’, I of course also co-host the weekly Accordion Noir Radio show broadcast on CFRO Co-op Radio, 100.5 FM in Vancouver, BC, CANADA

Available online and as a podcast onΒ AppleΒ orΒ Android with playlists shared right on this blog.

Thanks all 😍

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-03-25: Take It Away

March 24, 2020
AccNoir 2020-03-25
Finally an apt case for that old accordion joke: What’s your most requested accordion song? “Could you please play ‘Far, Far Away’?”

As threatened in last week’s episode, Bruce is taking no chances with social isolation, so he pre-recorded this week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio at home. Consequently, it is available for online listeners a little earlier than usual! (Of course, if our listeners are so very hard up, we do have literally hundreds of hours of back recordings up at the Internet Archive.) If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions haven’t already tipped you off, you can enjoy listening to this week’s episode of our radio program, including a nod to Bruce’s new quarantined passtime of recording himself reading passages from his Accordion Revolution history booknow available as an ebook at fire sale prices! Anyhow, here’s its playlist.

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us,Β there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoirΒ andΒ @AccordionBruce), Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook atΒ Accordion Noir fans,Β the Accordion Noir Festival, andΒ the Vancouver Squeezebox CircleΒ (cancelled for April, but they can always dream of the post-pandemic future!) Cheers & squeeze on!

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-03-18: Protecting Vulnerable Populations with Strict Social Distancing

March 19, 2020
AccNoir 2020-03-18

This week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio may be the last live broadcast we do for some time — in keeping with the quarantine theme of this week’s broadcast, Bruce is aspiring to keep his hands and mouth away from CFRO’s community microphones and mixing boards. But home listeners may never know the difference — the trick is that pre-recorded episodes give us the opportunity to fix mistakes before we go out over the air, so upcoming episodes may be conspicuously well polished. If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions haven’t notified you yet, you can listen to this week’s episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist!

(But first, a word from Bruce:) Hey all, Bandcamp.com is donating all profits to artists this friday, March 20, so I’ll be posting a bunch of Squeezebox acts on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AccordionBruce

Please jump in and support musicians who are losing all their live income.

(Not everything on my own list has squeezebox, but many of these are a good place to start: https://bandcamp.com/accordion-bruce

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-03-11: Birth Day Records, Jerry Cans and Soundscape

March 12, 2020
AccNoir-2020-03-11

This week, Bruce celebrated his discovery of the hitherto unobserved cosmic conjunction of squeezebox anniversaries coming down to bear on the date of March 11th:

Given the opportunity to cover for the time slot of the Soundscape show that typically takes place the hour before ours, that yielded a generous two-hour time slot that gave him ample opportunity to explore the glorious four-headed beast of March 11th, in addition to an in-depth look at Nunavuts The Jerry Cans, performing in-town this Friday night! Many concerts are being cancelled due to Covid-19, but we recommend locals check this one out not only because they’re awesome, but because if you miss out, it will be quite a bit more difficult to swing by Nunavut to check them out playing to a home crowd! If you can’t make it out to live music in these uncertain times, Bruce would like to direct you to the #BuyTheMusicYouWashYourHandsTo campaign, so that the creative professionals of live entertainment don’t have their entire livelihood rudely yanked out from under them. But I digress. You can hear this week’s double episode, supposing your Apple or Android podcast notifications haven’t kicked in yet, over at the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
