Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-09-29: Post-Fest Hangover show

September 29, 2020
AccNoir 2010-09-29


From ten years ago, here’s episode number 197 of Accordion Noir radio — a shift back into “normalcy” for us (admittedly an odd descriptor to use for a weekly alt-accordion radio broadcast, but even we have our routine) after running our festival’s grueling last-stand third instalment for over a week (resulting in no episode for that previous week!)  At its original online home, it clocked some 7033 listens, and courtesy of the Internet Archive, where it can be heard today, future generations may continue enjoying its strange and wonderful sounds.  Here’s its playlist:

This episode’s cover is of Geoff Berner about to be crushed by the Large Accordion Puppet which we hung above the various stages during the Accordion Noir Festival. Several smart-asses already asked why it’s not black. But then it wouldn’t show up in this picture, would it?
