Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-11-02: Power-Pop Squeeziness

AccNoir 2007-11-02


From the back annals of Accordion Noir Classic, here’s episode number 49 from way back on November 2nd, 2007!  Despite its somewhat underwhelming thumbnail artwork (we had lower standards back in the MySpace era, but a garmon is always an interesting specimen regardless!), this episode proved to be pretty popular (with some 13359 listens) at its original online home … and we hope that it continues to demonstrate a similar timeless vitality going forward at its new online home at the Internet Archive.  What musical selections lent it such dynamism?  Read on for the playlist!
