Accordion Noir radio playlist 2006-12-15: Our Third Episode

January 9, 2017
AccNoir 2006-12-15


From way back — slightly over ten years ago — we’re beefing up our weekly postings of new episodes by sharing their counterparts from a decade previous. Looking back through the outstretched bellows of time, today we reach what was only our third time on the air together, in the middle of the night from 2-3 am midway through December of 2006. Though over the past 10 years it garnered some 7979 listens from accordion fans, robots and web-spiders at its original location, it has a new home: we are relocating the back archives to the Internet Archive where someday, hopefully, the new episodes can join them in a colossal podcast archive once again. You can listen there, and here’s what you missed:

Accordion Noir: Playlist: December 15, 2006

Ten years ago we were jazzed to have a MySpace account for Accordion Noir Radio (which, believe it or not, really helped in networking with squeezy bands); today, that social media credential is a little underwhelming, and so we have diversified our portfolio — you can follow along on our beat scouring every mention of the word #accordion in realtime on Twitter with @AccordionBruce and @AccordionNoir… we share images from our local accordion scene and our squeezy travels on Instagram over at @AccordionNoirFest, and maintain no fewer than three Facebook groups specialised for Accordion Noir Fans, the Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle… choose your favorite or sign on to all three! Thanks for joining us on this expedition through time… cheers and squeeze on!
