AccNoir 2017-11-15


Greetings and salutations to the squeezebox nation!  Accordion Noir radio host Bruce keeps a calendar full of dates pertinent to forgotten titans of the global accordion scene, which he uses to theme the names of episodes — but, from looking at the playlists, which actually can exert a minimal influence on the content of a given show.  But maybe I missed something!  Here: you can listen to last night’s episode here, which looks like our customary mix of… everything! … and below is the playlist where you can keep track of what you’re hearing:

Viljo Mannerjoki’s Accordion Repairs and Restoration (not restaurant)

Have a go at Viljo’s survey where you can tell him how many reed-blocks your accordion has. I wonder if there will be a lot of “I don’t know” answers? He got 60 responses just today! Available until December 13.
