Accordion Noir radio playlist 2016-11-09: Double Dare Noir

November 17, 2016

Well, we done got confused. First, we were drawn upon to fill an extraordinary second hour before our usual start time, then we found our radio transmitter wasn’t transmitting, and finally we expected a guest to visit who we specifically invited to appear with us one week from now. Well, if you had to come up with 120 minutes of accordion music, your head would be spinning also! In any event, though our radio listeners weren’t hearing anything but static, you can enjoy what our online listeners were enjoying — two hours of accordion music delivered up as an audio stream! If your browser is capable of handling Flash widgets (mobile users: sorry, you’re still out of luck, but we’re working on it) you can point yourself to this link for the first hour, and then to this link here for the second. And if that’s not enough for you, well, you may be interested in our historical Accordion Noir archives with some 300 hours of our first six years on the air tucked away in mp3 format. That ought to be enough for any reasonable human being. But I digress! Here’s the playlist for last night’s epic accordion spree:

Gosh wow, that’s a ton of music! But there’s more! As if airing two hours of accordion music this week wasn’t enough, we’re presenting three more, live, at Spartacus Books tomorrow night, for our 10th anniversary cabaret! (Some of that, hopefully, will be harnessed for radio purposes on the occasion of our actual anniversary the first week of December, but we’ll see.)

If that all isn’t enough (are you for real?) you can of course keep up with the Accordion Noir crowd on social media, with a special focus on Twitter where @AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce run wild and signal-boost such dank squeezebox memes as they encounter. If your sad situation is such that accordions are better seen than heard, consider hooking up with our Instagram account @AccordionNoirFest, and of course our projects require no fewer than three separate Facebook groups, one for you Accordion Noir fans, one for the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle, and one for our phenomenal Accordion Noir Festival!

And don’t forget — it isn’t quite our 10th anniversary yet, so there’s still time for you to record and submit a celebratory version of you trying out our radio program’s theme song! If you don’t have a microphone… call us up and leave it in our voice mail box!

Cheers & squeeze on!
