Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-02-02: Is it Bandcamp Friday dot com?

February 2, 2022
AccNoir 2022-02-02
Live in Canada, by Jo-el Sonnier. On Bandcamp!

Over the past couple of gigless pandemic years, we’ve devoted more than our fair share of episodes (see for yourself) to the subject of Bandcamp, the digital music storefront that actually gives its artists a fair cut of the pie… at least one day a month more than the other competing music streaming services. When their “Bandcamp Friday” program is in effect, they eschew their share of the revenue from music sold on that day, the first Friday of the month, and more of it winds up in the pockets of your favorite tunesmiths. (If you’ve been looking for an alternative to Spotify recently, please pay attention!) This particular curated #AccordionBandcamp showcase episode of CFRO Co-Op Cooperative Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir program has a further sub-theme — a focus on our fellow Canadian purveyors of squeezebox music on that platform, ensuring that the purchasing power of your loonies will be guaranteed undiminished by the exchange rate! 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:
