From ten years ago, here’s episode 234 of CFRO Co-op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir radio broadcast, featuring the second part of an interview Bruce conducted with Bulgarian accordion master Petar Ralchev.  At its original online home, it logged some 5547 listens, and we’re confident future generations will also be interested in listening to it as digital audio via the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
