Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-06-29: We’ll See, Won’t We?

AccNoir 2022-06-29

There’s, er, a lot going on in the world right now.  So much so, that I don’t know if it would be a reasonable expectation for Bruce to be able to reflect it in his chosen medium of “curation of free-reed music”. Consequently, from the looks of things, the lineup of songs in last night’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast don’t appear to be strongly tied to current events… but regardless, it’s a great mix of different accordion music styles representing different traditions and genres from different parts of the world, our baseline fallback theme. 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 it as digial audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
