Accordion Noir radio playlist 2016-12-28: Lookin’ for Hindsight
And here we are again with a more contemporary episode of Accordion Noir, this one was our last of the year 2016 — the last before Bruce’s… accident, in which our humble host attempts to come to terms with the conclusion of a seemingly culturally ruinous year, through the medium of… playlist curation. (Also, he nods to the fact that two years running, we have had a wager where one of us will treat the other to a screening of that year’s holiday Star Wars movie, depending on whether I manage to come up with a published Accordion Noir Gift Guide blog post. Despite my strong start, before there were any films at stake, he’s won, two years running!)
You can hear a digital audio stream by clicking through this link (provided you are using a Flash-equipped web browser, we’re working on it!), and of course here are the tunes that appeared in the program:

I know — you love accordions and our work covering the accordion beat, but these recordings aren’t just being shared quickly enough? Fortunately, we also offer on-the-minute coverage over social media. You can keep up with us (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce) on Twitter, over on Instagram, and we have no fewer than three Facebook groups for our Accordion Noir fans, the Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle that just enjoyed a get-together last night!
Cheers and squeeze on!
