Accordion Noir radio playlist 2006-12-22: Bruce plays “Santa Claus” horribly!

January 10, 2017


Tearing right through history, here we are with another episode from the Accordion Noir Radio back catalogues a decade (and change) back — it’s our 4th episode, Dec 22 2006 (as close as we would get to Christmas that year), and then we’ll be skipping alllll the way forward to… early 2007. Hopefully soon we’ll be synched up 10 years back in lock-step.

Our records tell us that at its original location this recording was enjoyed 26455 times.  (Some of those times, presumably, by bots.) Now we have arranged for (Episode IV:) a new home to be extended to these positively historical recordings, to which we encourage you to go and visit for a good listen.
