Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-12-19: Christmas Squeeze

December 31, 2018
AccNoir 2008-12-19


Friends and subscribers, clearly we have gotten tripped up in the holiday season, falling behind in our re-sharing episodes from a decade hence even as we’ve been feverishly stepping up the pace at which we’re mirroring them at the Internet Archive.  Usually keeping in lockstep isn’t so critical, but when the active period covers the Christmas holidays, it does tend to inform the content such that … people may not be interested in hearing it at other times of year.  But since it’s not even New Year’s yet (well, not quite for another couple of hours), let’s see if we can’t get caught up here.  This is Accordion Noir  episode number 108, which racked up some 3331 views back in its first decade at our old online hosting; you can continue enjoying it through future holiday seasons up at the Internet Archive.  And to help complement the link to the hot, juicy recording, here’s the list of the songs included in it:
