AccNoir 2011-11-30


From ten years ago, here’s episode 261 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio 100.5 fm’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program.  On this occasion, we had played host to one of many visits from Francois Laberge, giving our listeners a sneak preview of his latest musical project, a cabaret in collaboration with Rejean Bussieres.  At its original online home, it logged some 6138 listens, and going forward it will continue to be available for your listening enjoyment as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
