Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-01-26: Friends In Far Space

AccNoir 2022-01-26
Then comes the unfurling of the sunshield, hitherto folded like an accordion, beginning on the sixth day, well after having passed the Moon.

Greetings and welcome to last night’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, focusing on the best squeezebox music in any style from all over the planet! This week’s instalment appears to be an excellent ambassador of our genre-agnostic programming approach, yielding zydeco, klezmer, blues, jazz, rock, microtonal Persian music, punk from Russia and classical from Belgium, indigenous music from Arizona… and a little something from Neil Young and Nils Lofgren — surely much better fits for our show than anything Joe Rogan could have cooked up. 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:
