Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-08-24: Weird Mix — Bruce plays long and short songs!

AccNoir 2007-08-24


Here we are, friends, up to Accordion Noir Radio episode number 38, from way back on August 24th, 2007.  Over the past decade it’s been enjoyed… rather a lot!  The ticker counts 15297 listens at its original online home, and we hope that it will continue to delight thousands more of the teeming masses at its new host at the Internet Archive, where you can download it as an MP3.  There’s no particular rhyme or reason to this particular 10-year-old playlist — Bruce characterises it as unusually random, but really you can say that of most of our broadcasts.  Diversity is our specialty!  Here’s the playlist so you can learn a little bit about what your ears are telling you…
