Accordion Noir radio playlist 2019-01-02: New Year’s Play-Date

January 3, 2019


Last night I got to start the year off right by sitting in with Bruce at the Co-op Radio control room and helping to hold down the year’s first episode of Accordion Noir Radio (while feverishly finishing off the e-mail list reminder — which you can see here, or subscribe to here — for tonight’s first-of-the-year instalment of the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle, 8-10 pm at Spartacus Books!)  It was a lively program, full of choice tunes by heavy-hitters in their respective accordionic genres, and thanks to the Internet Archive you can enjoy listening to it here even if you weren’t parked by your radio last night at 10 pm.  Here’s its playlist:
