Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-12-05: Best of 2008 Live Performers

December 10, 2018


This time ten years ago we’d gotten around toward the end of a calendar year of programming and put our backs into spending all of December in worthwhile reflection airing year-in-review material (which actually took weeks if not months of preparation to make happen.)  In this case, for episode #106, we gave an overview of some of the very best live guest performances we’d arranged to take place in our radio station studio over the course of the year.   The masses appear to have agreed with us that this was a worthwhile theme for an episode, as our online audiences were clocked as having downloaded it some 11057 times before the ticker broke.  You can continue enjoying the cutting edge of Vancouver’s accordionic live music scene, circa 2008, thanks to the episode’s permanent hosting at the Internet Archive — so please, go download it there! Here is its playlist:
