Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-02-21: Listen to the Witnesses

February 22, 2018

It’s true: whatever instrument you play, an algorithm has anticipated that you might want references to it printed on various unrelated household consumer goods.

The present state of the world is weighing heavily upon Bruce, inspiring this playlist — burdened, but in its own way, also hopeful.  (Nothing says “hope” quite like an accordion, as exemplified by the joke defining the word as an accordionist with a pager.)  You can hear digital audio of last night’s complete hour-long episode of moody accordion music, and to help you better appreciate what you’re hearing, here’s its playlist:
