masks The world situation — the dumpster fires small and large, far and near, present and looming on the horizon — have got Bruce in a Mood. Just because you share an hour of accordion music selections every week doesn’t mean that you’re not susceptible to the entire range of emotions! Bruce himself characterised this week’s program as “A disjointed affair about tragedy and getting by.” If you’re ready to hear what that sounds like, translated into accordionese… listen on! If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription, you can listen to this week’s episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
