Accordion Noir Radio -2014-01-15, Keep Rowan Moving Episode!

January 21, 2014

This week’s episode of Accordion Noir Radio (well, last week’s by now).  Rowan was moving to a new palatial palace floating above the Eastern hills.  I played music by college friends I haven’t seen in years, and Baby Dee, and the only Finnish Balkan band, and the Dirty Bourbon River Show.

Get the episode/podcast here:

If you follow Twitter, I’ve been posting updates on my book progress, which is progressing.  Onward from Polka to jazz (a natural progression), and Lawrence Welk’s children’s books.
