Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-05-04: Co-Op Radio Fund Drive and Powell River Accordion Festival

May 5, 2022
AccNoir 2022-05-04

It’s a heady time to be a supporter of accordion music or community radio in our corner of the world. Our parent radio station, CFRO Co-Op Community Radio, is undertaking its annual spring member drive to fundraise for its ongoing activities — we’d like to strongly encourage you to top up your financial support, if you haven’t already — and our neighbours on the Sunshine Coast are presenting the first installment of their new accordion festival this weekend! (see above) Neither of these events necessarily informed the programming of this week’s broadcast, which is our traditional mix of everything squeezy under the sun, but you know — it’s the context that sets the stage! 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:
