Accordion Noir radio playlist 2017-10-25: Wrapping Rocktober

October 26, 2017


What is the squeezin’-est holiday?  Well, OK, Mardi Gras has a good claim to that title.  But then?  Well, OK… St. Patrick’s Day.  But after that?  What?  Cinco de Mayo?  Mumble grumble.. anyway, somewhere below these holidays but above Groundhog Day and St. Nicholas’ Eve you find one of our favorite times of year, Hallowe’en, when we get to really highlight the noir side of the accordion with all kinds of spooky squeezings.  (For some reason, people don’t always appreciate it when we give Christmas the same treatment.  Go figure!)

In any case, last night’s episode of our radio program was all spooky squeezebox cuts selected in honour of the holiday, and you can listen to it right now, and every day through Hallowe’en, and indeed well into November (and in fact into perpetuity) over at the Internet Archive.  And so you know just what you’re getting into, here’s the playlist of last night’s program:
