Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-10-31: Hallowe’en special!

October 31, 2018


We were celebrating Hallowe’en with spooky accordion music on the radio ten years ago and by gum we’re still doing it today!  (Literally… we have an episode airing later tonight at the regular time, 10-11 pm PST.)  To see specifically just how we were rocking it back in 2008, here’s the relevant episode, number 99, from our archives.  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 3311 times but who knows how many of those were ghosts?  Going forward you can enjoy it into perpetuity at the Internet Archive, preserved against the ravages of time like a dessicated mummy or strangely-preserved bog monster.  (Or, you know, like the hot new instrument of 1829 in the year 2018. ) Here’s its playlist!
