Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-11-23: Denver Gothic

November 20, 2017


In today’s selection from our Accordion Noir Classic vaults, we exhume episode number 51, wherein we give the lie to our typical Vancouver bias by giving a focus to airing songs from in and around the alt-accordion Mecca of Denver, Colorado, co-hosted by founding Creaking Planks member Lee Shoal.  At its original online home this episode was enjoyed 14209 times and we hope that it continues to be appreciated at that pace over at its new forever home at the Internet Archive, where you can enjoy listening to it today!  And here, to help enhance your enjoyment… its playlist:

Imagine all the other towns out there (besides Denver) with accordion scenes noone’s heard of! They should visit us and send us music.
