Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-04-04: Fund-raisin’, Globe-stompin’ Son-of-a-Gun

AccNoir 2008-04-04


From the back vaults of accordion history, here’s episode number 71 of Accordion Noir Radio from way back in April of 2008, when we were getting serious about our annual fundraising obligations to our parent radio station CFRO Co-Op Community Radio 100.5 fm.  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 15472 times, but with your help I bet we can meet or beat that total over the next ten years up at its new online home.  And to entice you over there to have a good listen, here’s the episode’s playlist:
