Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-11-27: Squeezebox Circus Music

November 25, 2019


From ten years ago, here’s episode number 154 of our weekly Accordion Noir radio program.  If you look at the numbers, it’s a little odd — this far down the line we can’t tell whether our episode was pre-empted for a couple of weeks (which does happen once in a while) or if we just lost the recordings (also not unknown), but one way or another while last week’s archival selection was from a bit more than ten years ago, now we are right back on schedule!  The subject of this episode was the favorite noir squeezebox genre of everyone except for coulrophobics, “Circus music”!  At its original online home, it was enjoyed some 42071 times, and at its new home at the Internet Archive we just know that fans of the greatest show on earth will continue enjoying listening to it.  Here’s its playlist:
