Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-09-23: Is it 2016 yet?

AccNoir 2020-09-23
The Diana Lachiondo campaign for County Commissioner in Boise Idaho has this Basque immigrant accordion T-Shirt available, which I will support! (Rowan notes however: that’s no trikitixa!)

As is often the case, Bruce’s choice of title for this week’s episode of CFRO’s Accordion Noir radio program is simply too clever for me. Is he suggesting that the past four years have simply been some bad fever dream? If you read between the lines you can make out current headlines in his song selections, with this week’s batch of music churning beneath the surface with undercurrents of social unrest at the police brutality and the failure of the criminal justice system. (And people used to dismiss accordions as fit only for frivolous and upbeat champagne music!) In any case, if you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscription you can listen to it here, courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
