From ten years ago, here’s episode 231 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program, featuring great squeezebox music from all over the world, in every style.  This one is named after Bruce’s research unearthing details about Lawrence Welk’s music-themed fast food restaurant, about which you can read more in his book!  At its original online home, this episode logged some 3503 listens, but you can continue enjoying listening to it today courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
