Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-02-08: Valentines Day Show!

February 5, 2018


Are you ready for Valentine’s Day?  We’re sure not ready for Valentine’s Day!  And yet this many weeks into the year, ten years ago, we were definitely girding our loins for this holiday, looking for ways to remind people that the accordion was not just a musical punchline, but in the right hands could be a dangerous weapon of passion and violent emotion!  Anyhow… here it is, from the archives, Accordion Noir episode number 63.  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 3266 times… we’re sure in time that will be met or surpassed at its new forever online home.  Enjoy downloading this vintage episode and to help you better understand what you’re hearing, here’s the playlist:
