Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-04-20: Sending April Squeezes

AccNoir 2022-04-20

By pre-recording these episodes of our weekly hour-long CFRO radio program, as he has been doing since the start of the pandemic, the Accordion Noir host Bruce Triggs has been in a very different situation from that of the previous decade-and-a-half of live broadcasts: now he has the option of listening to them after they go out, after he has put them together… and sometimes he is pleasantly surprised by what he learns about his own musical selections, being granted the extraordinary luxury of getting to enjoy listening to the songs without the nagging worry in the back of his head wondering how many seconds remain until the song’s end and pondering which track will follow it — or if he needs to make a station ID announcement. There are no big suprises in this week’s episode: it’s just our standard mix of great accordion music, representing different musical genres and traditions from across Europe and the Americas. (There’s much more out there in Asia and Africa and South America, but it’s not mandatory to circumnavigate the globe every week!) 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:
