Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-03-20: Pile-diving!

Playing catch-up with our archives, here’s episode 120 of Accordion Noir radio from 10 years and a month ago.  Looking over the playlist, the only theme emerging seems to be the result of our standard modus operandi: these songs have nothing in common, no genre or locale, except for use of an instrument from the free-reed aerophone family.  At its original online home, it accumulated an astounding 10921 tracked listens, and you also can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
