Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-01-15, Snow Day and Royalties

AccNoir 2020-01-15

This week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio, which airs weekly from 10-11 pm at CFRO 100.5 fm Co-op community radio, carried a torch for two odd little themes for accordion music, celebrating yesterday’s visit of HRH the Dutchess of Sussex to the DTES Women’s Shelter basically right next door to CFRO… and acknowledging the thick, cold blankets of the white stuff burying everything in town over the past couple of days. So songs about royalty and snow.

And Bruce is at pains to point out: “Especial notice of my 8 minute ‘Radio-Play Concertina Remix’ of the 1936 film The Princess Comes Across (starts on our episode at 20:55). Or check out the whole film for yourself at:
