Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-12-28: Klezmer Noir (part 2/3)

January 10, 2022


Here in 2022 we’re well into the new year, but ten years ago we still hadn’t escaped the gravitational pull of Bruce’s impish Christmas celebration of three hours of klezmer music.  We reshared the first past last week, and will get around to part three next week, but today here’s hour 2 of his winter klezmer celebration.  At its original online home, it logged some 7161 listens, and you can continue enjoying it as digital audio today and into the future courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Tonight’s cover illustration: My college friend Christina Crowder, who converted me to the accordion in about two seconds in 1990. Yea! This is her (I think) more recently with The Wholesale Klezmer Band. (I don’t think we have any recordings of her with them yet.)
