Accordion Noir Radio playlist 2016-05-25: Dylan is 75 and Finally Likes Accordions

May 26, 2016


(No, Bob, “harmonika” is German for accordion!  Don’t mix your free-reed instruments!)

(Rowan looks at the below playlist.  Rowan sees nothing by Bob Dylan, especially not with Bob and accordion, such as “Romance in Durango” or “Beyond Here Lies Nothing”.  Rowan bitterly rues his decision to allow Bruce to name the episodes.  Probably it is in reference to current events — Bob’s 75th — untouched by our episode’s programming, possibly further influenced by Bruce’s work on the closing chapters of his accordion history book.  But… that’s all a digression from what we have here to serve up to you!)

Well, folks, it’s your Accordion Noir co-host Rowan here again letting you all know that another great episode of our weekly all-accordion, alt-accordion radio program has been let loose into the world — broadcast over the airwaves last night and available as an internet stream for your enjoyment over here.

    I love your site, keep up the good work. At 80 it helps to motivate me and my repertoire on the accordion.

      Thanks John,

      We hope to provide decades more motivation for you, like the story of Jenny Vincent who played until she was 100+!
