At this time of year ten years ago, we aired Accordion Noir Radio episode number 68, a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day showcase of music from the traditional Celtic nations (uh, but primarily Ireland) — at its original online home it eventually accumulated some 10414 listens, but you can keep on enjoying this dyed-in-the-green recording over at its new online home for this St. Paddy’s and many more to come!  Here’s its playlist:
