Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-01-10: Somewhat Deeper Listening

January 11, 2018


Last night’s episode followed up a very special in-station event celebrating the “deep listening” of the late Pauline Oliveros (a controversial figure in the accordion avant garde whose oeuvre we have touched upon at least twice before) in conjunction with the Soundscapes program immediately preceding ours on the station schedule.  So we also began our program with a nod to her corner of the accordion world before segueing on over to a celebration of this year’s calendar girls in the fabulous Accordion Babes Pin-Up Calendar / Album (which, you should remember, we still have a few copies available to sell at Spartacus Books).  You can hear the full episode as a digital audio stream, and to enhance your deep listening enjoyment… here’s its playlist:
