Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-12-08: Best Live Acts on Accordion Noir 2010

December 28, 2020

why us

Here it is, folks, from ten years ago… episode #208 of CFRO Co-op Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program, playing only the nuttiest and most esoteric squeezebox music to ever adorn the airwaves!  A good demonstration of our December festivities in our early years — we would (in pre-Pandemic times, if you can believe such a thing) have guests perform live at the radio station from time to time, and at the end of the year cut their performances — which if not for our program would never even exist! — into a bootleg mix tape of sorts, splicing together a highlights reel of all the best of the live cuts we had hosted in that calendar year.  It’s a fun way of going about doing things, and I hope we can return to it when everything settles down.  Anyhow, at its original online home, it clocked some 6147 listens, and you can continue enjoying it as vintage digital audio into the indefinite future courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
