Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-05-21: Last Friday Blowout! with Jeffrey Bützer and friends

May 25, 2020


I know, last week’s curation from the archives offered up our first week at our new time slot ten years ago, but after we debuted in our new spot we still got a chance to bid adieu to our old one.  And here it is, Accordion Noir episode number 180, one of the very few times we’ve had the opportunity to air multiple episodes in the same week!  It featured a couple of special guests sitting in over the telephone lines, and is a fun little sendoff to Friday night.  At its original online home it achieved a logged total of some 7838 listens, but we can continue rebuilding those numbers by listening to it today as digital audio at its new online home over at the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
