Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-01-29: Canadiana Emojiana

January 30, 2020

Yesterday was a big day for us! Not only did we air our annual SOCAN special of accordion music by Canadian songwriters, but our host “Accordion” Bruce Triggs’ proposal for the imminent adoption of an accordion emoji (a grave oversight, we must all agree) was announced through official sources and Twitter kind of lost its mind a little bit, extending credit to “Weird” Al, They Might Be Giants, and … just about anyone else who also didn’t put in the work.

But I’m sure their efforts at keeping the dim accordion flame lit during its uncoolest ’80s and ’90s served as distant inspiration somewhere to elevate the underdog instrument years earlier, long before the concept of an emojo was a glimmer on anyone’s phone. We can share the credit, that’s OK. We all have our roles to play. Anyhow, the emoji will automatically add itself to your device’s complement of emojis in a couple of months, as will last night’s radio episode if you have subscribed to our podcast on your Apple or Android device, but supposing you haven’t hooked yourself up that way yet, you can also just go and listen to it over here. Here’s its playlist!

AccNoir-2020-01-29, Canadiana Emojiana!

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 (in one week’s time). Cheers & squeeze on!
