Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-07-20: Summer Weather

AccNoir 2011-07-20


From ten years (and change) ago, here’s episode 241 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long all-accordion alt-accordion Accordion Noir radio program!  Eyeballing the playlist a decade later, I can’t divine what the program’s theme was, which probably means that it didn’t have one — beyond our standard default theme of great squeezebox music in all styles from every corner of the globe.  (Oh, that.)  At its original online home it logged some 5083 listens, but accordion fans can continue enjoying listening to it as streaming digital audio served up on demand via the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
