Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-06-06: It’s June Now

June 7, 2018
AccNoir 2018-06-06


No obvious thematic pattern emerges from the typically scattered playlist of this week’s episode of Accordion Noir: Bruce has indulged his special trick of programming songs from all different styles originating from far-flung corners of the globe, crashing into each other like train-wreck song transitions on an untouched-by-human-hands playlist from a Jack-format radio station.  Of course, there’s one thing that these songs all do have in common: the instrument of the accordion, proud to show off its thousand and one faces.  That’s basically our only trick, but after over a decade, it’s still a good one.  Click here to listen to this week’s new episode, or read on for the tossed salad of its playlist:
