Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-01-09: Toddish McWong’s Gung Haggis Fat Choy!

January 21, 2019


Ten years ago, we had accordion-slinging wunderhapa Todd Wong return to our program on its 110th episode, letting us know that his “Gung Haggis Fat Choy” Chinese Robbie Burns night dinner was on!  (Indeed, over the past decade, it’s been off and on, but I believe this year it’s on again after a five year hiatus.)  At its original online home, it garnered some 3534 listens, and you can continue enjoying it at the Internet Archive as digital audio.  Here’s its playlist:
