Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-01-01: New Year’s Noir 2010

January 6, 2020


From ten years ago, here’s episode 160 of the Accordion Noir radio show, celebrating the start of a new year going out live actually on New Year’s Day.  At its original online home it clocked some 9195 tracked listens, and you can continue incrementing the imaginary accumulator at its new online home at the Internet Archive, where you can listen to it as though it was 2010 again!  [2022: Actually, you can’t — it looks like the episode has been removed by request of a copyright holder.] The cover art features the fabulous Accordion Babes Pin-Up Calendar — naturally we have sold out of the 2010 edition, but Bruce still has several copies of the 2020 edition in stock, so if you’re intrigued by that most curious piece of merchandise, please do look him up!  He’s a motivated seller.  Now, on with the old music!
