AccNoir 2022-03-02

Whatever is going on in the world in a given week, there’s a fair chance that our crate-digger Bruce can come up with something applicable to it, as filtered through the lens of accordion music.  This week, naturally, it’s spotlight on Ukraine. We always try to help out as best we can — this time Bruce directs your attention to fundraising for Roma within Ukraine in the midst of this chaos, about which you will find more information in the links below. 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:
