Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-06-12: the Redboot Quartet — Putting the Fun Back in Funerals!

June 24, 2019


From ten years ago, here’s episode number 132 of Accordion Noir radio, in which we featured a live performance from Alison Jenkins’ combo the Redboot Quartet.  At its original online home it achieved a grand total of 9932 listens and at its new hosting over at the Internet Archive where you can hear it today we look forward to it continuing to be enjoyed for decades yet to come.  Now here is its playlist:

Apologies for the distortion on the accordion on some of the live tracks tonight. That’s my (Bruce’s) fault, we’re only on book four of the Palmer-Hughes book of radio-broadcasting.
