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.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-09-08: Noir Fest Preview, Hurricanes and Earthquakes

September 9, 2021
AccNoir 2021-09-08
Ana Bon-Bon, the Hot Water Quintet, and, more this Saturday afternoon at Maclean Park!

Greetings, friends! We’ve been keeping it low-key, to suppress attendance (these are strange times!), but we do want to give everyone a chance to catch… the 14th annual Accordion Noir Festival! In the interest of public health, it’s being conducted outdoors, as part of the Maclean Park Music series, the afternoon of Saturday, September 11th, from 2-5 pm! (The 14th annual Accordion Noir Festival is presented with support from SoundON, Creative BC, and the Province of British Columbia.) And this week’s episode of our radio program celebrates this well-ventilated, socially-distanced by-donation gathering, featuring last year’s fest kicker-off Ana Bon-Bon and what just might be the debut performance of the Hot Water Quintet! (All that, plus a somewhat predictable, if exceptional, unnamed guest.) This episode of our program looks into all that, plus Bruce shares the spotlight on hurricane and earthquake relief fundraising, through music! If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to this episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

(But first — Earthquake and Hurricane fundraisers:)

Haitian band Lakou Mizik: recommends FOKAL’s efforts because they are distributing funds directly to LOCAL GRASSROOTS organizations – if you can contribute please go to: http://www.ademen.org

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-08-24: Reggae Summer

September 6, 2021

We have fallen out of synch with our back archives, episodes churned back up and re-shared approximately ten years following their original air date.  Nonetheless, we plunge boldly onward regardless!  The only way out is through!  While my suspicion that the title “Reggae Summer” for this archival episode, number 246, may be somewhat of an overstatement… we don’t lack for boldness of vision!  At its original online home, this recording tracked some 5614 listens.  Intrepid accordion and reggae fans can continue enjoying it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

August 30, 2021
AccNoir 2021-09-01
All of these sentiments are simultaneously true. You can listen to the music here.

Here we are again, friends — it’s a new month, and with it the first Friday of that month, and with it… well, you already know how we like to celebrate Bandcamp Friday over in these parts. Here’s a chance for us to share music with you available for sale to benefit inadequately gigging squeezebox stars during this interminable disruption to “normalcy”. This week’s playlist is again, a selection of great accordion music avaliable for sale on that site — and if you buy some of it this Friday, it’s just about the best deal going for composers and performers depending on revenues from online commerce to justify their ongoing involvement in the arts. Since the pandemic tightened up access to our parent radio station, all of our episodes have been pre-recorded, but this one a little bit more so than the rest of them — Accordion Noir’s host Bruce Triggs is taking a little time off at a getaway, but he looks forward to enjoying litsening to his own voice broadcasting Wednesday night from 10-11 pm at 100.5 fm. If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-08-03: MusicFest Vancouver Hayloft Kickstart

August 23, 2021

From ten years ago, here’s episode 243 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir program.  At its original online home, it logged some 5947 listens, but you can continue enjoying it as digital streaming audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir-2011-08-03, MusicFest Vancouver Hayloft Kickstart

Go to the Music Fest Vancouver this weekend [ten years ago]!

“Accordion Day,” with three international classical accordion acts!
Saturday, August 6th.  [The three acts included the charming Dutch TOEAC, pictured, and Steve Normandin, then of Quebec.  Rowan introduced himself after the concert and we hit it off, ultimately relocating to a downtown cafe where we were eventually asked to leave due to Steve’s excessive animation in his enthusiastic advocacy for accordion.  This led to multiple visits by Steve to our festival and our radio program.  Rounding off the program was the late Alexander Sevastian, of the Quartetto Gelato.  This all is reflected in this episode’s playlist.]

Regina Carter with her Reverse Thread Project (Will Holshouser, acc.)
Monday August 8th. Amazing opportunities! [Bruce doesn’t lie; this was also an incredible concert.]
