For years we’ve been talking about it — first as punchline, then as challenge, and at long last … as a two-hour fall member drive special! What’s your favorite work of accordion hip-hop? Who’s the best rapper in the squeezebox game? By the time we’re done with you, you will not only have answers, but enough options to have arguments on the subject!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2018, starting an hour early at 9 pm and running through until 11 pm PST, join us at 100.5 fm CFRO Co-op Community Radio (or their live audio stream) for Accordion Hip-Hop Noir. For the PSA we borrowed a hook and some rhymes from the undisputed master of the game, the Madlib / MF Doom joint from Madvillainy aptly titled “Accordion“, and enticed you by meeting our subject deep in its own territory, Accordion Noir co-host Rowan (aka Mix Master Mud) demonstrating his hitherto forgotten fresh flow:

Livin’ off borrowed time, the clock tick faster
For two whole hours you’ll be hearing Stradella masters
Rowan and Bruce hosting it, lo and behold,
accordions in hip-hop: the greatest story never told!
Keep your glory, guitar and glitter –
You’ll see for no good reason accordion’s been out the picture.
Nine to eleven pm, listen if you dare:
October 24, it’s like CFRO get like: “Aw yeah!”
Mixmaster Bruce’ll be plugging in his laptop
And dropping some beats playing non-stop hip-hop on Co-op.
Accordions and rap music October 24,
starting at nine pm, only from Accordion Noir.
… Slip like Freudian,
Your first and last step to playin’ yourself like accordion.

Then if you just can’t manage to wrap your head around what you’re hearing, Accordion Noir co-host Bruce (aka MC Trichinosis) gives you the “white dad” remix.

Community radio is the only place in the world that would give a platform to not just an all-accordion radio program, but an all-alt-accordion radio program… for over a decade! Our station has no sponsorship; payola from Big Accordion is not what it once was, so you need to understand that it’s only through the support of members that we get to enjoy the pleasure of sharing such niche but essential programming with the world. If you’d like to help our station to remain on the air — and to let them know that alt-accordion fans aren’t afraid to vote with their wallets — please consider buying a membership from our parent station CFRO Co-op Community Radio (no amount is too small), and let them know that we’re your favorite program on their schedule!

    I just added the youtube video of us rappin’ here. When I played it for my 17 year olds it exceeded my “unhip white dad” expectations. They were overwhelmed. It was awesome.

    This show is gonna be so much fun. So listen in on Wednesday and make a donation to to keep the accordionation on the station. Thanks for your support.
