    Hi Bruce! New Year Greetings from New Zealand. (I was the one discussing Gaucho Bandoneon and mentioning our museum accordion collection.) I am really interested in your radio show for the eclectic accordion content! My life has been accordions. [PLus I worked in community radio In the late 1990’s to early 2000’s for well over a decade as daytime and specialist show DJ announcer interviewer / receptionist / board member / and tried almost everything from applying for funding funding and live fundraising and other public events to taking care of the specialist show volunteers etc etc.] ……Here is the link to our WHISKEY BUSINESS CD we put out a just couple of years ago. I play accordion in it and all of us are music teachers and/or vocal coaches. We got together to jam with a blues harmonica player and tried zydeco but none of that is on this album. ONE FOOT IN THE GROOVE was recorded up here by Barking Records/Mercury Production. Everything from Dylan and Gillian Welch to Boz Scaggs and the Supremes – with OUR selection of instruments – guitars, accordion, mandolin, flute and up to 4 part harmonies!
