Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-01-19: Gung Haggis Fat Choy, Bellowing Pipes!

From ten years ago, here’s episode 214 of CFRO Co-Op Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, featuring all the wheezes that are worth squeezing!  This episode featured yet another visit from our colleague hybrid vigour enthusiast Todd(ish) (Mc)Wong, famously of the Gung Haggis Fat Choy combination Burns Night / Chinese New Year dinners — which Bruce, Alan and I had the pleasure of experiencing for the first time as Todd’s guests one year ago, just before everything went sideways.  (It’s a blast, and maybe you’ll have the chance to find out for yourself in 2022!  But I digress.)  On this occasion Todd brought along his friend Allan McMordie, and the two of them blasted us with a few tunes with the Scottishness turned up to eleven.

At its original online home, this episode logged some 4757 listens, but it remains online for the enjoyment of future listeners courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
