Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-01-11: Gung Haggis Fat Choy!

January 8, 2018

Lionhead tight Gung Haggis.jpg
And here we are, at archival Accordion Noir Radio episode number 59, featuring our first visit from Todd[ish Mc]Wong, hapa accordionist of Gung Haggis Fat Choi fame.  Classically trained through the Kiwanis (etc.) competition system and (obviously) embracing his Scottish heritage, his selections are distinctly of a different character from the Noir picks Bruce and I typically embrace, giving this episode a very different texture from usual.  (And, as they say: vive la difference!) At its original online home this episode achieved a total of 3255 listens, and we know it will someday meet and surpass that total at its new online home where you can download it or listen to a digital audio stream at your leisure.  Here’s its playlist:
