Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-06–08: Tunes with Rowan

June 27, 2021


From ten years ago, here’s episode 235 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program.  I can see from the playlist that, as with the previous episode, it is about halfway composed of field recordings and music pertinent to my then-recent visit to Paris, Utrecht and Castelfidardo.  (Why were they split up between two episodes?  Probably I had just arrived the previous week, flush with fresh content, and needed a little time to clean up and work with the material I’d brought back to make sense of it all.)  At its original online home, it logged some 6580 listens, but you can continue enjoying it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Tonight’s cover illustration is: a pan-European image of a French musette accordion player, all in Russian (I think.) Sadly, no idea where we got that one.
