Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-12-21: Bruce’s faves 2011

December 27, 2021


From ten years ago, here’s episode 264 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast.  Ten years ago we devoted the month of December, in which we first started airing, to anniversary and “year-in-review” programming.  The way Bruce celebrated this occasion was usually by airing his favorite accordion music that had been released in that year, or had at least first crossed his desk in that year.  At its original online home, this episode racked up some 7078 listens, and you can continue enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
