June 21, 2012

These fine radio folks down in the Bay Area posted a fun episode of mostly accordion music (They’ve now done three episodes so far!).

I want that Carter Family Chet Baker record, and there’s a few more I’d like to get.

[Below is all taken from their site]

N.A.A.M & A.A.M.A.M. – WEEK I, ON GRAMOPHONEY BALONEY
Huddie Ledbetter (aka Lead Belly)
Yes people! June is both National Accordion Awareness Monthand African-American Music Appreciation Month! Although both were commemorated simultaneously for a brief moment, courtesy of Huddie Ledbetter (aka Lead Belly), DJ McSchmormac kept the rest of the show focused on accordion awareness, except when documentary filmmaker Maureen Gosling called in to chat about theArhoolie documentary, currently in production.
