Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-09-21: Accordion Noir Festival on the threshold 2011

November 22, 2021


Ten years ago, we were getting ready for the fourth year of our annual Accordion Noir Festival, drumming up interest and excitement locally by airing tunes by the performers planned to perform that weekend — festival regulars Geoff Berner and local squeeze kings Maria in the Shower, plus assorted virtuous locals and of course our international headliner, the Bay Area’s certified punk rock accordion god Duckmandu who, it turns out, was refused entry at the border.  All that and more you can hear and enjoy in episode 250 of our weekly radio program!  And why, you may ask, did we hold back this episode in order to air this material this week?  You see, just as it was curated to spur interest in our festival then, we’re revisiting it now to help spur interest in our virtual 2021 Accordion Noir Festival program, airing as a potted video stream on Facebook this Saturday, Nov 27th, starting at noon PST.  Yow!  At its original online home, this episode logged some 5940 listens, but you can continue enjoying it today as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
