AccNoir 2019-06-12: They Might Be Birthdays
Myron Floren – Disco Polka, 1977

For this week’s episode, Accordion Noir radio celebrated the birthday of its host Bruce Triggs (who has a lot to celebrate this month, and many opportunities to do so!), which just so happens to coincides with the birthday of They Might Be Giants accordionist John Linnell, who every other day of the year can play this song. Also we shared a hot new track by Matt Dallow and an historical treat exhumed from the milk crate of history… and the whole rest of the show, besides! You can listen to it online courtesy of the Internet Archive (or subscribe to the podcast over here!), and in the meantime, here’s its playlist:
