Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-10-12: Cooling Sunny

October 18, 2021

From ten years ago, here’s episode 254 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast.  A quick scan of its contents confirms my suspicion that the episode has no theme beyond our standard mix of wildly divergent squeezebox music styles from all over the planet.  At its original online home, this logged some 3207 listens, but you can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-10-13: Wednesday the 13th

October 14, 2021
AccNoir 2021-10-13
Amusement (2008)

Yesterday’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast is out! I see French and Spanish in the titles of the songs we aired, and I see tunes clearly telegraphed as belonging to the klezmer and celtic genres… in short, it’s another brilliant mix of our trademark international melange! (Not at all the creepy milieu I evoke with this episode’s title and image… sorry, I’m in a seasonal mood.) I understand it also stands in memory of Tony MacMahon, who Bruce tells me had his name said out loud several times in this episode, possibly not correctly once. (Apologies!) In any event, if your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.

The music programming of last night’s episode of Accordion Noir had no rhyme or reason Don’t take it up with me, Bruce picked the songs and he himself described the selection as “random”.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-09-29: Civil-Disobedience in Canada, and Bandcamp Friday! 

September 30, 2021
AccNoir 2021-09-29
Nothing to do with Civil DIsobediance in Canada actually, but we take what we can get.

Bruce is at it again: there is an injustice going on somewhere in the world (well, in our backyard), and even though his platform is optimised for delivering accordion music, specifically, he is commandeering it to share his strong and worthwhile feelings on the matter with a wider audience.  The first few songs in tonight’s episode appear to be pertinent to the matter (for elaboration, read on) — then he changes gears into promotion of this Friday being a #BandcampFriday, an opportunity to financially support the recording artists of #AccordionBandcamp. It’s all great music! Great music and great politics, what’s not to like? The way the world is going, this may necessarily become the dual new theme for every future episode. Anyway, if your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir-2021-09-29: Civil-Disobedience in Canada, and Bandcamp Friday! (Oct 1)

Tomorrow Sept 30, is the first annual “Truth and Reconciliation Day” in Canada. A national holiday recognizing the murder of untold thousands of Indigenous children as part of Canada’s national “Residential School” program of cultural genocide:
https://www.canada.ca/en/canadian-heritage/campaigns/national-day-truth-reconciliation.html

Meanwhile, the Canadian government continues its abuse of Indigenous rights and of all future generations with massive globally-impacting resource-extraction projects:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-09-22: Oh September

September 23, 2021
AccNoir 2021-09-22
“Outfit: Fresh for Autumn”, a timeless look from ten years ago.

Hello and welcome to this week’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, sharing the greatest alt-squeezebox tunes in history from all over the world! Greetings to our contingent of new listeners from the Underground BBS Discord!  Our regular DJ Bruce (Bruce, do you have an underground club DJ name? Mine was Mix Master Mud!) had a few things on his mind this week — the changing of the month and turning of the season, certainly, as well as the ongoing ravages of the Covid-19 pandemic’s 4th wave (represented by Geoff Berner’s new filk) and … Bruce Springsteen. Well, why not? He also wanted to share a story with you about the Pixies song his co-host (me, Rowan) performed live on the air nearly 15 years ago, after learning that it’s been rattling around in the brain of one of his neighbours ever since, but didn’t quite manage to squeeze it in this week. (I bet that makes this aside a sneak preview for next week’s episode!) If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-09-15: “Music With Personality” (And don’t cut down 1,000 year old trees)

September 16, 2021
AccNoir 2021-09-15

Looking over the playlist of this week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio, I can perceive no consistent theme other than our standard “a mix of great songs representing different musical traditions from different parts of the world” — a thematic failure of the imagination of sorts, but one whose ends still justify its means. But I can see that Bruce nonetheless wants to make this episode about something timely and important, even if that important thing is not actually what the content of the episode is about.  Well, you know, we do our important work using the platform that we have. He wants you all to know that our provincial government is inadequately protecting one of the few remaining stands of old growth forest remaining on Vancouver Island, in Fairy Creek, and that the RCMP are treating the environmental activists there very cavalierly. I don’t think that last night’s radio episode is really about that, but absolutely this post is. Anyway, if your Apple or Android 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: (but first, a few more words from Bruce)

🪗 Activism for a Better World 🪗

🌲 The (supposedly “progressive”) government of British Columbia is backing the logging of some of the last old-growth forest in our province. Thousands of people have risked arrest in the largest act of civil disobedience in Canadian history. Police have violently and illegally attacked citizens, including press trying to cover the situation. Please follow this story and call for accountability. These thousand year old trees could be lost within weeks.
