Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-09-26: #ListenToWomen

This Machine Fights SexismRemember when Bruce programmed over a month of episodes containing exclusively recordings by women accordion acts in honour of International Women’s Day?  As a gesture of solidarity with current events unfolding down in the lower 48 (and, sadly more lowkey, every day under the patriarchy everywhere on the planet), he’s busted out another one, demonstrating that the best way for men to be feminists is to make room for women.  You can enjoy listening to last night’s hour-long episode of Accordion Noir Radio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist!
