Accordion Noir Radio playlist 2017-03-08: International Women’s Day Special
(Le Quintette féminin D’accordeon de Paris 1957.)
We haven’t got that much March remaining in which to catch up with sharing our March radio broadcasts, but we’re going to try to grit our teeth and blitz on through… perhaps the least conventionally-feminine metaphor we’ve ever employed? Well, you might not think of an accordion as a women’s instrument either, but as usual, we’re here to shatter all preconceptions! This here is this year’s fabulous International Women’s Day episode, an annual tradition we’ve observed just about from the start, which you can enjoy (for some six months) as a digital audio stream or (forever, hopefully) as an mp3 served up by the Internet Archive, where you’ll someday be able to find all episodes of Accordion Noir Radio.
