Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-08-22: new tunes from Berube and McNeill

August 27, 2018
AccNoir 2008-08-22


From ten years back, here’s an archival episode of Accordion Noir Classic where we featured new squeezebox music from hot Canadian songwriters like Mark Berube and Wendy McNeill.  But everything old is new again — ten years along, Berube just played a show in town earlier this month (though it is deeply unclear that he has brought his accordion along with him forward through the years), while Wendy McNeill will be joining us at our festival’s closing party in just a few weeks!  (Better buy tickets now!)

At its original online home, this episode tallied 2673 listens, but going forward you can enjoy this blast from the past, echoing forward through to the future, as digital audio hosted at the Internet Archive.  Simply click here!  And now to get the juices flowing, here’s the episode’s playlist:

A note on our late podcasts:
Ok, after all the work of our first Accordion Noir Festival, I (Bruce) am going to reduce the amount of editing I do on the raw podcast files, so we can get them out quicker. I had been listening to each show and balancing levels and cutting out some dead-air. Now I’ll try just trimming the start and stop so you’ll hear our show “live,” and we’ll see how it goes. I did this show in five minutes, saving an hour! So, you might get ten podcasts in one night! I still have to finish this playlist, and the internet is down. Oh, it’s back! Thank you for your requests for more episodes! We’re listening to you too.

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce), Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fansthe Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle. Cheers & squeeze on!
