Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-11-17: Smooth Trim with Mrs. Marple

AccNoir 2010-11-17


From ten years ago, here’s episode number 204 of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir radio program!  After weeks of focused programming through our festival and member drive, usually we relax with a few episodes’ worth of random grab-bag accordion programming of tunes in various genres from all over, and this program appears to fit that description.  At its original online home it tracked some 6014 listens, and present and future listeners can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of its new online home at the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Still trying to catch up with our podcast, broken after the hard work of the long fund-drive specials. We hope for a big maintenance update in the new year.

And for the cover image? A weird gargoyle face that comes up if you google “Mrs. Marple Melodeon.”
