Accordion Noir radio playlist 2019-05-08: World Accordion Day to Day

May 9, 2019

The announcement of this week’s episode of Accordion Noir comes with a cross-promotional endorsement:

As part of Co-op Radio’s Spring Member Drive, Bruce announces [heh, he wrote this in the third person – Ed.] that he will offer a copy of his upcoming Accordion Revolution book at his book launch [in June, stay tuned!] to every listener who donates more than $120 at once or as a Sustaining Donor of [at least] $10 / month.
Check out the cover we revealed in honor of International Accordion Day!
Donate using the enticing purple button on the website, tell them Accordion Noir sent you, and get ahold of us to receive a copy of the book! (Note, we’d have to arrange postage for distant listeners).
Thanks so much for your support!

Phew. Last night’s episode followed a frequent theme, acting to illustrate the accordion’s many faces in different styles across different cultures worldwide. Soon we’ll also be able to footnote songs in the playlist with relevant pages in Bruce’s accordion history book! Until then, you can listen to last night’s episode over and over again online courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
