Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-11-02: Taste of Co-Op

Here we are with, well, it’s not a full episode but then again there are some double-length ones, so on average it might well be considered our hundredth recording.  Let’s consider it episode 100.  “Taste of Co-op” is an annual radio sampler where programs at our parent station CFRO get to broadcast mini-sets at a time other than their usual spot on the schedule so as to pitch what they’ve got on tap to potential new listeners.  Here we were, sitting with Marc Lindy and setting forth our audio manifesto for a new accordion century.  It was enjoyed some 2510 times at its old online host, and now you can hear it mirrored up at the Internet Archive!  Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir: Playlist: Nov 2, 2008, Taste of Co-op, yakkin’ with Accordion Noir!

Just a little special we got to do where all the shows on the station come on and chat with Marc Lindy from the Gospel Train. We were preceded by The F Word, (“Feminist,” Sat 8-9 AM,) and followed by the Persian show Pazhvak (Mon 9-10 PM). We hope to have them on to talk about Iranian/Persian accordions, cool!
