From ten years ago, here’s episode 223 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir program.  The episodes leading up to this one had all been saddled with various seasonal themes, so a cursory glance at the playlist suggests that Bruce was taking a break from being topical to just enjoy sharing some music he had enjoyed and flagged in his “play on next available episode” file.  At its original online home it logged some 5621 listens, but you can continue enjoying it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
