Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-03-07: Women’s Week

March 8, 2018


In one of our oldest annual traditions, last night Bruce aired another of our semiregular International Women’s Day specials (I don’t have all the episodes at my disposal, so I don’t know if we’ve managed every year, but off the top of my head: 2007, 2008, 2011, 2017) which this year is somehow timelier than ever (despite, alas, being a perennially evergreen theme) which you can enjoy listening to as digital audio.  And to enhance your enjoyment of what you’re hearing, here’s its playlist:
