Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-07-15: Almost #WorldEmojiDay!

What does an emoji sound like? … yeah, your guess is as good as ours. But soon, the accordion emoji we have discussed at such great length (as is our right, as the applicants for its approval!) will be going live on various online platforms. There’s a little vote going around to determine which new emoji people are most excited to see arrive, and we’re hoping we can get you all to send in a ballot on behalf of the humble squeezebox!

Anyhow, that doesn’t have much to do with this week’s episode of our hour-long weekly CFRO radio program, except that they are both entirely concerned with accordions! The program is of our typical mix, flitting lightly from style to style and visiting many different parts of the world. If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can listen to it as digital audio right here.  Here’s its playlist:

Listen to the crows cawing and construction grinding outside Bruce’s not-at-all-soundproofed-with-the-windows-open-in-summer recording at home #PandemicAmbiance.
