From ten years ago, here’s episode number 183 of Accordion Noir radio, our usual heady mix of styles and genres (Persia… check!  Bluegrass… check!  Congo… check!) from disparate places and eras.  At its original online home, it was clocked at 7573 listens, and going forward you can enjoy listening to it via the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
