Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-11-10: Falling Up

November 9, 2020


Phew, and with that, we’re done with another installment of the annual Accordion Noir Festival!  How to celebrate?  Why, by listening to back episodes of the weekly Accordion Noir radio program, of course!  Here’s episode 203 from ten years ago.  It doesn’t appear to have any particular theme, which is just fine by us, allowing us to celebrate our core mission: offering a wide spectrum of free reed music across all cultural and genre boundaries!  At its original online home, this episode tracked some 6480 listens, and we hope it will continue ensnaring unwary ears for years to come courtesy of the Internet Archive, where you can listen to it going forward.  Here’s its playlist:
