Accordion Noir radio playlist 2016-12-14: Jingle Bellows fundraiser
All right, friends, we’ve been playing fast and loose with chronology here, flickering between the present and our nascent selves ten years ago but the end of the year is our chance to get things back into shape. So here’s one from earlier this month we were sitting on in order to release in a delayed fashion for maximum impact. Well here and now is that moment when that maximal impact is needed! In this episode from the middle of December Bruce looked at the full versions of all the songs that were represented in our “Jingle Bellows” campaign in abbreviated ringtone form. That campaign is only in effect for a few more days, still needing (as of the solstice) to raise about $750 further before the end of the month, so we need to remind you all of the excellent reasons to donate to our festival and help make that happen for its own 10th anniversary in fall 2017!
So. You can hear the episode as a digital audio stream (through Flash-compatible web browsers, sorry would-be listeners on mobile devices!) by clicking on this link right here! And so as to further enhance your appreciation of what you’re about to hear… here are all the details about the songs you’ll be encountering in the playlist!
