Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-05-11: Still Driving for Co-op Radio Funds!

Just kidding, that’s not us, it’s Gary Sredzienski enjoying great success fundraising for 91.3 FM WUNH at the University of New Hampshire in Durham.

Here it is, last night’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast! I don’t know if Bruce had a theme this week beyond “here’s what’s going on in my corner of the accordion world” — this year’s Eurovision accordion number has washed up (yay, Moldova!) and Bruce just returned from presenting at the first annual Powell River Accordion Festival! The big story of course is that our parent radio station is fundraising, and you could help us out a lot if you sent a little financial support its way. Bruce elaborates in his comments below, so read on! 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:

A generous donor offered to match each donation up to $10.000!
