Accordion Radio – or Digital Approximations
I saw this post over at the swell Accordion Cafe blog asking about online accordion listening and mentioning us. Since before we started the Accordion Noir radio program six years ago I’ve been keeping tabs on “the competition,” and recommend you do too. Please lend an ear to:
Ethno Music and Reports, from Austria
(use search box on left: “accordion” Many past programs and live recordings by Jason Webley, Accordion Tribe, accordion from Madagascar, etc.)
Connected with the amazing International Accordion Festival in Wien, Austria:
Polka Party, old-school polka with Gary Sredzienski (who plays with The Serfs, a surf-rock polka band)
Steve Jordan documentary:
(search for “accordion” turns up 50 other programs about various artists. Neato.)
Squeezebox Stories: great documentary pieces made for NPR
More Accordion: from Salem, Oregon.
“Accordéon sans frontières”
