Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-10-16: Accordion Noir Festival Replay!

October 28, 2019


From ten years ago, here’s episode number 150 of our weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program at CFRO Co-op Community Radio, 100.5 fm!  They are just wrapping up their fall member drive, but we should include future-proof links on how to support our hosts, because in any future in which they are still a going concern, they will still be listener-supported.  But I digress!  Also tied to near-current events, while we will be presenting the 12th annual installment of our Accordion Noir Festival in just a couple of weeks, it makes sense that 10 years ago we were celebrating its second iteration.  So this episode is full of field recordings from that event.  At its original online host, it achieved a huge total of  9110 listens, and you can enjoy catching up with it today courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here is a fragmentary playlist of the recovered footage:

This episode’s cover is: Your own 2009 Accordion Noir Festival Ticket! (Painstakingly designed to look like a playing card, and then be thrown away!)

Note: Sorry this took so long to post here, Bruce was out of town for the original broadcast and we won’t go into the details because it got sordid from there, but we apologize and are happy to share it now. Some good stuff here!

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce), Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fansthe Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle. Cheers & squeeze on!
