July 18, 2021

From ten years ago, here’s episode 238 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir radio program.  Bruce was making it a preview of Vancouver’s annual summer Jazz festival — typically a relatively accordion-light affair — and framing it in a context of historical accordion jazz recordings, with as its centrepiece some backstage bootlegs, never widely availble, of the criminally under-recorded Alice Hall.  At its original online home, it logged some 5218 listens, but you can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
