Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-03-21: Vagabond Paradiso Scatter-Shot Warm-up

AccNoir 2008-03-21


From ten years ago, here’s Accordion Noir Radio episode number 69 (…nice!) out of the deep archives from way back on March 21st, 2008, framed as some sort of promotion of bandoneonist Douglas Schmidt’s Tango Paradiso ensemble, which despite being seemingly in torpor ten years on is still eminently worthwhile.  But I digress.  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 13216 times and at its new online home, where you can enjoy it today… well, the sky’s the limit.  To enhance your historical enjoyment, here’s the full playlist of that recording (which, again, you can listen to today by clicking on the above links):
