For some, it’s sufficient to celebrate International Women’s Day. Our DJ Bruce likes to lean in to affirmative action, sometimes programming exclusively songs written and performed by women for the entire month of March. If this trend holds true, there’s a very good chance you’ll be hearing more out of the wonderful women of accordion world in the coming weeks. In the meantime, over the past few years, we’ve aired no fewer than thirteen hours on the subject. Well, now you can make it fourteen. 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:
