The heat is returning. Heavens preserve us! It’s hot enough without having to layer heat on heat with hot jazz. Couldn’t we have some cool jazz? Even luke-warm jazz, if icy jazz isn’t available. You don’t want the accordions to get too hot, or the beeswax in their reed banks will melt and then your instrument will be useable only as maraca. Anyway, here’s this week’s episode of our weekly alt-accordion broadcast at CFRO Co-Op Community Radio 100.5 fm, now available for online listeners! If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital streaming audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
