Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-07-18: German Fan-Club!

July 16, 2018


This doesn’t happen often, by which I mean it never happened before nor since, but ten years ago, some faithful listeners dropped in on the 85th episode of their favorite podcast while on vacation in Vancouver. Galinda & Wolfgang Wiehler were visiting from Germany (with their instruments, as one does), and let Bruce know that he was one of the reasons they had picked Vancouver and could they sit in on an episode of that legendary broadcast? Bruce happily obliged and all our listeners (well, some 3235 people at our old website at least) got to enjoy this holiday high point, and we got to consider ourselves a minor tourist attraction. We have since learned that our festival (coming up in September) also drives some intercontinental traffic, so it just goes to show — sometimes by trying to foster your local accordion community, you build stronger bonds with the global one! But I digress. You can enjoy this archival recording as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive — here are the songs it contains:
