Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-04-20 (early show): Joanna Chapman-Smith and Katheryn Petersen Noir

AccNoir 2011-04-20


From ten years ago, here’s episode 227 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long “Accordion Noir” radio program.  As now, ten years ago this was also spring member drive season for CFRO (have you renewed your annual membership yet?), and we did what we could to stack the deck with special guests and extraordinary programming.  On this occasion we were joined by the incredible singer-songwriter Joanna Chapman-Smith, accompanied by the versatile Katheryn Petersen who would go on to play such a huge role in directing our annual festival for its hugest years in the meantime!  We also put the lie to “hour-long” by immediately following this broadcast with another two-hour alt-instrument special, the magnificent “Banjo Noir” … but one thing at a time!  At its original online home, across most of a decade this episode tallied some 9732 listens, and you can continue enjoying it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
