Accordion Noir radio playlist 2016-12-21: the Longest Noir

December 22, 2016
AccNoir 2016-12-21


The premise was pretty clear — every week we broadcast an episode of alt-accordion music, and shortly thereafter we post links to it up here allowing folks to listen who our radio broadcast signal doesn’t reach.  But due to Extra Business in a Complicated Time of Year, we’ve had to break sequence to ensure that our shows don’t get stale before they fall out of timeliness.  So here it is — last night’s episode of Accordion Noir, a seasonal collection of songs to celebrate the longest night of the year and some other things going on around this time.  (It gets lighter from here on in, right?)  You can enjoy listening to a download of last night’s program as digital audio served up via the Internet Archive.  And here, to enhance your enjoyment of the broadcast, is the complete playlist of songs contained therein:
