From ten years ago, here’s episode 297 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio broadcast.  In 2022, here’s Rowan interpreting the title Bruce imposed on this recording, which appears to be a playlist of musical selections pulled by Rowan out of his music collection at that time — not the muscular mountain of radio fodder Bruce has filled hard drives with, but a respectable hour of radio nonetheless, hosted by your humble co-host while Bruce was away on doubtlessly critical business. If you like you can give the episode another listen as digital audio, courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
