Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-08-17: Live with Mark Berube!

August 14, 2017

what-the-river-gave-the-boatTen years ago I was still in and out of town on the road playing weird little gigs throughout Western Canada with the Joey Only Outlaw Band, but after we migrated to our pre-midnight time slot, when possible I would hook Bruce up with live guests to join him on the show.  Here, for Accordion Noir Radio episode number 37 back on August 17, 2007, he was joined by then-local angel-voiced singer-songwriter Mark Berube, generously giving us four live squeezy performances of songs from his album “What the river gave the boat”.  The episode was enjoyed 3590 times at its original online home and we hope it continues getting enjoyed by Berube devotees over at its new host at the Internet Archive.  Here, to help enrich your archival listening experience, you can refer to the episode’s playlist:
