Our accordion radio episodes from ten years ago were pretty raw, but after a decade of practice and refinement, we’re still serving up an hour of accordion radio over the airwaves on a weekly basis … and we’ve just about gotten things figured out now.  Here from way back on February 8th … of this year… we present to you our recent program on the theme of accordionated progressive rock!  Progcordion rock if you will.  John Wetton’s recent death was an obvious entry point, not because he played accordion, but because his King Crimson colleagues collaborate with Finnish accordion monster Kimmo Pohjonen in KTU… which you’ll find in full effect here in this playlist.  You can enjoy the show as a (Flash-required) digital audio stream served up by our parent radio station CFRO Co-Op Community Radio 100.5 fm  or if you prefer you can download a full MP3 of the episode from the Internet Archive. Now here’s the playlist so you can appreciate just which virtuosic player is blowing your mind at a given moment:
