Accordion Noir Radio playlist 2016-07-06: Spectacular 501st Episode
Not a great night for festivities, but then again — when is it? I suppose if we’d waited a week for our guests it wouldn’t have knocked Geoff Berner for a loop: whatever the catastrophe, there’s always a Victory Party going on. Well, we pull ourselves together and carry on as best we can; here’s the playlist to last night’s program, and you can listen to a digital audio stream of last night’s show over here!
Not the smoothest episode, but distracted by life. Here because we care enough to make the 501st show.
I tweeted this before the show:
