Accordion Noir Radio Maria Kalaniemi Special, May 27, 2015

June 6, 2015

May 27 was the birthday of Finnish accordionist (and only female member of the Accordion Tribe) Maria Kalaniemi (not just in 2015, but every year, thanks to the way birthdays work!), so we did a special extended 2-hour Accordion Noir Radio episode of her music (also featuring some of her friends.)

Maria Kalaniemi and her accordion in a window seat.

Getting playlists posted regularly is an ongoing challenge, and we’re not even certain this one is totally in the correct order, but it’s such wonderful music it seemed worth putting up.

You should be able to listen to the shows (hour 1 taking over Soundscape’s slot, hour 2 in our regular slot) courtesy of the Internet Archive.  And now, here’s the optimist, potentially-complete playlist:
