It is now the month of June and June is, as you can see, Accordion Awareness Month. Chances are if you were not previously aware of accordion music, you probably have not found your way to this website, but there is always room to become more aware. Help your friends get a leg-up by playing last night’s hour-long episode of our weekly alt-squeezebox broadcast from CFRO Co-Op Community Radio on the line-in during your carpool commute! Here it is, our standard heady melange of free reed aerophone music in different styles and genres representing cultures from different parts of the planet! 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:
