Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-12-14: Bruce’s faves of 2007

December 11, 2017
AccNoir 2007-12-14


And we’re back with further selections from the Accordion Noir Classic vaults, 10 years ago.  This here is episode number 55 — following Rowan’s songs-of-the-year the previous week, Bruce picked his favorite tunes we’d aired during our first year.  (Bruce would switch format in subsequent years, making his annual best-of reflecting music released that year… but here at least, for the first time around, he stuck with the program.)  Little did Bruce realise that we’d end up hosting his beloved Iva Nova at our festival nine years down the line!

At its original online home, this episode of Accordion Noir Radio was downloaded 14308 times (you see where Rowan’s inferiority complex comes from, his picks a full seven times less popular!), and you can continue enjoying listening to it (leaving Rowan’s episode in the dust) at its new online home at the Internet Archive.  Here, to further enhance your enjoyment, is its playlist:

Please, please consider a donation to keep our little radio station alive. Co-op Radio is completely sponsored by listeners, no huge government or corporate funds. Each show asks its supporters to kick in to keep the whole affair on the air. We need to earn $700 a year for our share of CFRO’s budget. Get an online membership at, and tell them Accordion Noir sent you. Please email us if you donate too, so we make sure squeezeboxes get credit!

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce), Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fans, the Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle. Cheers & squeeze on!
