Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-02-15: Tango Train

February 13, 2018


Ten years ago we found we had an extra hour on the air to fill during a week when our lead-in program (the Gospel Train) was taking a little break, which happened to coincide with a week in which our dear friend (and tanguista par excellence) Ariel Marsh happened to be in town.  One thing led to another and she led us down a two-hour guided tour of the many facets of tango music — some selections more accordionic than others — as a gentle ramping down from the intense romance of Valentine’s Day the day before.  (Of course, our parent radio station CFRO Co-Op Community Radio does also have a dedicated tango music program, but this was outreach to the accordion community specifically 8)

At its original online home this episode (our 64th!) was enjoyed some 2780 times, but in time the numbers at its new online home will meet and even surpass that impressive total.  You can go there and listen to it today, but if you do you might appreciate the following playlist to help tell your ears just what it is that is moving your feet and stirring your soul:

Accordion Noir: Playlist: February 15th, 2008

Tango Train: a Tango-Lesson, a Valentine, and a Birth-Announcement!

Extra-special, extra-looong, installment of Accordion Noir with special guests: Ariel “Scissor-kick” Marsh, expert in tangology by acclaim, and strong-silent-type “Wyoming” Johnny Lyon of the Creaking Planks!

This is sometimes one of the sillier discussions of the dignified Tango I have ever heard. Hope nobody comes after us.
