Accodion Noir radio playlist 2021-12-22: Squeezemas Greetings

AccNoir 2021-12-22

From… tomorrow night, here’s an episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir show, coming at you from the future, yet to air! Like Ebenezer Scrooge, you’re being visited by the Ghost of Christmas Radio Future. (Don’t worry, Tiny Tim’s interview will go off as planned, but the news hour technician will play the wrong clip.) Bruce threatens (er… promises) “a slightly weirder/less minor-key conniption of holy-and-not-so-holy-day tunes on @CoopRadio, including a preview of @TheTigerLillies new #ChristmasCarol 🪗 🤡🎄 👻 which is due on #AccordionBandcamp Dec 23!” It sounds like a good time as far as seasonal radio goes! 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:
