Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-08-11: Rowan’s Back Smoothly

August 17, 2020
AccNoir 2010-08-11


Ten years ago, Rowan had been out of town for some reason or another — likely helping Joey Only to launch his Transgression Trail album — but by the date of this archival episode, number 191, he had returned to his home base, by which I mean a chair in the CFRO radio station studio.  (I have to assume that’s what we were discussing here, otherwise I have to figure out why Bruce was talking about my hirsute back, which couldn’t have been fairly described as “smooth” for several decades now.)  At its original online home, this recording achieved some 7114 listens, and you can continue enjoying it as digital audio today courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
