Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-01-05: Year of Our Noir 2021

January 6, 2022
AccNoir 2022-01-05

Phew, what an exhausting year! This one also seems likely to offer many of the same challenges that 2021 did… and also, lots of accordion music to help make it all worthwhile! Here we are, sharing the first episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast of 2022, and it looks like the curatorial theme Bruce was angling for in his playlist was squeezy music that was released in the 2021 calendar year. There you go! None of it is at peak freshness, but also none of it has really had the chance to yet grow stale. I am sure every listener will find a lot to enjoy here. 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.
