Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-12-25: Longest Show of the End of the Year

December 30, 2019


From ten years ago, here’s episode 159 of Accordion Noir radio, recorded on Christmas Day itself!  After all these years on the air, Bruce is a bit of a seasonal programming expert, so he really lets loose in these episodes.  At its original online home, this one clocked some 8872 listens, and it will keep tallying more at its new online home at the Internet Archive, where you can listen to it any time to satisfy all your accordion Christmas music needs!  Here’s its playlist:
