Accordion Radio – or Digital Approximations

January 16, 2013

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:

The 2013 International Accordion Festival in Wiens, Austria, with Guro von Germeten!Ethno Music and Reports, from Austria
http://emap.fm/search.php
(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:

    From the post at Accordion Cafe, this French show looks good too:

    Great list of accordion radio stations. I’ll have to check out a few that I didn’t know of. Thanks for mentioning the More Accordion radio show!

      Hi Tara! Accordion Noir co-host Rowan keeps saying we should figure a way to swap stations for an episode. Like if you have a local Portland guest on your show we could rebroadcast that. Could be fun.
