Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-08-05: Squeezebox Circle Thursday and Bandcamp Friday

August 5, 2020
AccNoir 2020-08-05


This week is our monthly “Squeezebox Circle” gathering, which takes place the first Thursday of every month!  Historically it’s elapsed among the radical bookshelves of Spartacus Books, but in pandemic times we hold it in the open air at MacLean Park.  It has a monthly e-mail newsletter that also keeps people posted regarding local accordion affairs of all kinds, and you can sign up to it here if you like the sound of that…

… but not only is it Squeezebox Circle Thursday, but Bruce has cannily noticed it is Bandcamp Friday coming up again — another opportunity for independent recording artists to bear the full brunt of your generosity without any middlemen taking their cut.  Of the two events, the latter more completely informs this week’s selection of songs on this episode of our radio program.  If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can enjoy listening to this episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

* Francesco Maria Narcisi & Giacomo Fidanza – D2 – (Voce celeste II) – The Accordion Sessions (2017) – Alameda, California. USA – (With bits of broken accordion included in the CD packaging!)
