Bruce has a breath of fresh air in his radio curation.  He pumped it there with his own accordion, which he is now learning to play — the final untapped frontier after closing the book on writing the instrument’s history.  So last night’s episode of our program has some hot new recordings from various sources, with a bias (this week at least, but one we try to generally reflect in our festival curation) toward female composers and performers.  (Last year he rode that theme for over a month!)  In any case, you can enjoy listening to it online as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
