Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-08-24: It’s Hot Inside and Out

AccNoir 2022-08-24
This album has some fun punk accordion photos in its liner notes!

“Heat” is the musical theme that Bruce was working with when plotting out last night’s hour-long episode of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir broadcast! I looked for images of the hot wax apparatus used to effect reed repairs inside the instrument, but it looks like they’re trade secrets. Rest assured the playlist is lively and diverse, as per our usual! 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:
