Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-01-05: Happy Old New Year!
Here we are with another vintage Accordion Noir radio episode — only our fifth ever — which racked up some 4753 listens at its original hosting over some ten years and hopefully will garner quite a few more at its new home at the Internet Archive, starting tonight! As the title suggests, it originally aired January 5th, 2007, from 2-3 am in the middle of the night. It was the first episode of the new year, 2007, and gets us a little step closer to getting all synchronized posting episodes a decade apart, which it turns out isn’t as easy as it seems it ought to be, even though most of the work was done along time ago!

Rowan & Mark Twain learn to play Robert Burns while tangling headphone cables in the bellows. Bruce adds a bit of Guy Klucevsek’s Accordion Misdemeanors underneath, but this confuses things. (Interesting piece that by sir-Guy, it’s incidental music for the audio-book of Annie Proulx’s Accordion Crimes, showing accordion-music through history. Fun: gotta play some more of that.)
Marlene Dietrich closed us out from – the Cosmopolitan Marlene Dietrich – Time on My Hands (1951) (Lovely)
