Pretty sure Rowan chose this image for the title. We’ll get Sara’s music on the program next week. 🪗 Bruce

Last night’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast is very in our wheelhouse, featuring songs in a bafflingly wide array of genres from all over the globe, with strong representation from women accordionists (for IWD!) and a slow arc toward social justice. 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:
