Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-01-31: Last of the First

February 1, 2018


It’s been a cold and rainy start to February 2018 here in Vancouver (as usual), but wherever accordion music is audible, flowers begin blooming!  (Except when the accordion music is sad.  Then the rain intensifies.  Or when the music is passionate and enraged, then you have to avoid spontaneous knife fights.  But you get the idea.)  Bruce aired a nice variety of emotional squeezebox tunes on last night’s hour-long episode of Accordion Noir, vacillating between the two poles of zydeco and new music.  (I didn’t know they were opposites either!)  You can enjoy listening to it as a digital audio stream, and to enhance your enjoyment… here’s its playlist:
