Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-10-12: Cooling Sunny

October 18, 2021


From ten years ago, here’s episode 254 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast.  A quick scan of its contents confirms my suspicion that the episode has no theme beyond our standard mix of wildly divergent squeezebox music styles from all over the planet.  At its original online home, this logged some 3207 listens, but you can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
