Hallowe’en is around the corner, so it’s time to conceal our identity and dress up in some kind of disguise.  When this time of year rolled around ten years ago, we hid ourselves in plain view by indulging our Fall Member Drive tradition of giving our program up to a fellow underdog instrument, one that didn’t have a radio program devoted to it every week.  Thus, I bring you episode 255 of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir radio program: Hurdy-gurdy Noir.  (Part I!!!) This installment featured our very knowledgeable live guest Beverly Dobrinsky of the Ukrainian vocal ensemble Zeellia.  At its original online home, this recording logged some 5429 listens, but can enjoy it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
