Accordion Noir radio playlist 2008-12-26: Rowan’s Faves of 2008

All right, I don’t know how this happened, I must have somehow fallen behind posting from our archival selections a decade ago over the holidays, because we are now distinctly in 2019 and I’m still sharing back episodes from 2008.  But they’re good episodes, well worth sharing, so I can’t just skip lightly over it!  This one, episode #108, was part of our annual year-in-review programming — I would re-listen to an entire year’s worth of episodes, 52 hours of them, taking especial note when a song cropped up that hit my mainline and tickled my fancy.  Here they are, my absolute favourites of all the songs we aired in 2008 — the top 2 percent of everything we played that year.  At its original online home it was enjoyed some 3036 times, and now thanks to the Internet Archive squeezebox enthusiasts of the world can continue enjoying it indefinitely into the future!  Here’s its playlist:
