AccNoir 2009-05-01


The very merry month of May begins with a worker’s holiday.  A little late out of the gate, but here’s how we celebrated that occasion ten years ago, making a whirlwind tour of territories formerly in the Eastern Bloc.  At its original online home, episode 127 achieved a high-water mark of 12916 listens… we are looking forward to meeting and beating that record at its new online host over at the Internet Archive, where you can hear it today and forever going forward.  Now here’s its playlist:
