Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-08-10: Jen curates the crates

AccNoir 2011-08-10


From ten years ago, here’s episode 244 of CFRO’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio progam. This episode was derived from cream skimmed from the coincidentally accordionic music collection of a great supporter of our activities, Rowan’s wonderful wife Jennifer, who makes a lot of what we do possible. At its original online home, this episode logged some 5403 listens, and you can continue enjoying it today as digital streaming audio via the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
