Snow piggies enjoy the sound of the frozen accordion, in Harbin, China

Bruce reflected that the selection of songs in last night’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long episode of the Accordion Noir show was a good fit for our plunging into the darkest time of the year: “Good tunes tonight… Kind of a gloomy feel with some uplift brightness.” What would be more appropriate to the season? If your Apple or Android (or plain old RSS) podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
