Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-05-16: Mothers and Others

From the mouth of programmer “Accordion” Bruce Triggs himself, on the subject of tonight’s episode of Accordion Noir Radio: “This week on Accordion Noir — Mother’s Day tunes with political asides as called for.”  Mothers are always well worth celebrating, though if ever there was a time for political asides this is it!  His curatorial angle seems a little oblique in that blurb, but if you’d like to get a better idea of what to expect, you can get a sneak peak at the playlist below before accessing digital audio of the episode over here.  Enjoy!
