Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-05-07: Siete De Mayo

May 4, 2020


From ten years ago, here’s episode 177 of our weekly Accordion Noir radio broadcast, tiptoeing around the Mexican non-holiday of Cinco de Mayo as a still worthwhile excuse to air some great squeezebox music fueled by a wind from south of the border.  At its original online home, it clocked some 7888 listens, and we are confident future generations (maybe even current ones!) will continue enjoying listening to it courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

This episode’s cover is a weird metal mariachi-accordion player. I think his accordion is backwards, with a lot of buttons welded on. Not sure how playable that would be:
