Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-10-24: 3 hours (!) of Accordion Hip-Hop Noir

October 25, 2018

Accordion Hero Dick Contino, wearing a metallic mask like the DJ MF Doom. I think there might have been some photoshop involved.

OK, we talked it up endlessly for so long, it was mostly ready to air six months ago, and now you finally have a chance for yourself to determine whether you can believe the hype.  Here it is, an historic radio first — Accordion Hip-hop Noir!  For last night’s fall member drive special we must acknowledge and thank our colleagues in our lead-in program, Soundscape, and our follow-up program, Late Night With Savages, for granting us the use of their time slots for this unprecedented member drive special… because we aired 3 hours of accordion hip-hop, surprising even ourselves!  (Truth be known, for the first two hours we were only clocking 37 minutes of music per hour of airtime, because we had a lot to say despite not knowing anything about our subject… but the point is, there’s a ton of material in this extraordinarily super-long broadcast.)

But don’t take our word for it.  Here’s the link — open the floodgates!
