Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-09-07: All Canadian, All the Time

AccNoir 2011-09-07


From ten years ago, here’s episode 248 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, featuring the best alt-accordion music from around the world, in every style.  Or, in this case, the best alt-squeezebox music from every corner of the second-largest country in the world.  Once in a while we do an all-CanCon special to help fortify our average Canadianosity, or because SOCAN has specifically arranged to scrutinize our programming on a given date, hence this particular set of songs.  At its original online home it logged some 4989 listens, but you can continue enjoying it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
