Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-03-28: Women’s Music Bonus Week 5

March 29, 2018
AccNoir 2018-03-28


Bruce heard there was going to be a Women’s March and took it literally, programming each of our four episodes in the month of March 2018 — some four hours! — exclusively with music performed by the ladies of the accordion.  Last night’s episode was no exception.  (Well, actually I think that the Jerry Cans don’t properly belong on this playlist under that mandate, but… you can consider them the exception that proves the rule.)  Which under-represented group will we shine the spotlight on next?  (Traditionally we’ve achieved this with our member drive specials on fellow traveler underdog instruments such as banjo or bagpipes, but there are perhaps bigger systemic injustices to address in society beyond what one can hope to achieve with two hours of ukulele music on the radio.)

But I digress!  You can enjoy listening to last night’s hour-long broadcast by clicking here for our growing collection of digital audio recordings at the Internet Archive.  And if you need the deal sweetened, here’s a sneak preview (well, a preview of something that already aired, but probably is new to you, you know what I mean!) with the episode’s playlist:
