Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-05-23: Concertinas and Stuff

AccNoir 2008-05-23


It looks like we took a week or so off after our Cinco de Mayo extravaganza ten years back, probably to make room for member drive specials, but before May was up we came roaring back with what must be Accordion Noir episode number 77, which shone a tiny light, among the regular mix, on the world of the Anglo concertina (not to be mistaken with the English concertina, a real linguistic conundrum.)  Back at its original online home it was enjoyed 3307 times and, as always, we hope that it continues to be enjoyed at least as many times.  You can continue enjoying listening to it into the future at the Internet Archive, and to help illustrate why you might want to, here’s the episode’s playlist:
