Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-05-02: with Blackberry Wood!

AccNoir 2008-05-02


For the extremely archival Accordion Noir radio episode number 75, all the way a decade back, we celebrated by having some live guests into the studio with us — East Van’s high-energy circus band, Blackberry Wood!  At this moment in time their lineup included Katheryn Petersen on accordion, and much joyous squeezing ensued.  At its original online home, the episode racked up some 3653 listens, and future generations can continue enjoying the recording over at the Internet Archive.  Now to prime the pump… the track listing:
