July 27, 2020

typowriter

From ten years ago, here’s episode 188 of CFRO Co-op Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast, featuring a heady melange of different styles of squeezebox music from all over the planet!  At its original online home it was tracked as having achieved 5893 listens, and we are glad that future generations (heck, present ones too) will be able to continue enjoying listening to the recordings courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir-2010-07-21, Dedicated to William Burt, who on this date obtained the first patent for a writing mechanism called the Typowriter. (Actually it was July 23rd, call that what you will.)

This episode’s cover is: Hmm. I could use the scratchy image of William Burt at: http://www.typewritermuseum.org/history/inventors.html (I can’t find a picture of his “typowriter/typographer” machine.

But we’ll go with George Blickensderfer’s spectacularly spindly first portable typewriter (1893): http://www.answers.com/topic/typewriter

Leaving out Giuseppe Ravizza’s lovely scribe harpsichord, which is pretty darn nice: http://www.feedingthepuppy.typepad.com/feeding_the_puppy/page/2/

And off course, nothing approaches the steam-punk glory of Hansen’s Writing Ball. I have one wired to my computer to type these missives to you. (See next week’s cylinder recordings for more lively industrial-revolution technology.)

AccNoir 2020-07-22

depositphotos_82238756-stock-illustration-sad-bear-sits-with-an Congratulations, everyone!  Coming at you a day early, here’s this week’s pre-recorded episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir program!  I can see that programmer Bruce (whose latest round of care packages have recently been well received, place your orders now!) loosely arranged it around a summer theme, so we can try to seasonally enjoy ourselves in the great outdoors as best we can even in the face of pandemic and unrest (all mere sideshows to the climate change revolution also underway, but one crisis at a time!)

And because I knew you’d want to know… some good news, for a change — based on the vote conducted last week, our accordion emoji is the fourth-most-anticipated new arrival from 2020’s batch of new emoji!  Thanks for all your votes and support! If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can go listen to this week’s episode as streaming digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive right now!  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-07-15: Almost #WorldEmojiDay!

July 15, 2020
AccNoir 2020-07-15

cartoon_accordion_03web

What does an emoji sound like? … yeah, your guess is as good as ours. But soon, the accordion emoji we have discussed at such great length (as is our right, as the applicants for its approval!) will be going live on various online platforms. There’s a little vote going around to determine which new emoji people are most excited to see arrive, and we’re hoping we can get you all to send in a ballot on behalf of the humble squeezebox!

Anyhow, that doesn’t have much to do with this week’s episode of our hour-long weekly CFRO radio program, except that they are both entirely concerned with accordions! The program is of our typical mix, flitting lightly from style to style and visiting many different parts of the world. If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can listen to it as digital audio right here.  Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir 2020-07-01

Screenshot 2020-07-01 19.25.37 First, Bruce interviewed Jared Snyder.  Then, drawing on that research, he wrote the Black Accordion chapter in his squeezebox history book, “Accordion Revolution“.  Then… he read the chapter as part of our Car-Free Main Street videostream stage, filling in for Tower of Dudes.  Finally… he reworked and polished his reading, and added historical recordings mentioned in the text. Those round out tonight’s episode of Accordion Noir radio, which, if you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can listen to as digital audio right here.    Here’s its playlist:

From ten years ago, here’s episode 184 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast, another mixed program with a small but dense heart of what I gather might be styled accordion jazz.  While we can’t track Nielsen listenership, we do know that at its original online home, it achieved some 7439 listens.  You can enjoy listening to it now as a digital audio stream.  Here’s its playlist:
