AccNoir 2010-03-19


Ten years ago, for episode 171 of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir radio program, we were visited by Maylee and Noah from Victoria’s accordion alt-rock band Tower of Dudes, vanguard of our stalled but merely delayed aspirations to export the Accordion Noir Festival to Vancouver Island, stay tuned.  At its original online home, this episode racked up some 6863 listens, but you can continue enjoying it at its new online home at the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
