From ten years ago, here’s episode 302 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly, and typically hour-long, Accordion Noir radio broadcast, squeezing out the best and least expected free-reed aerophone music to be found around the planet.  In this case, we were celebrating a special occcasion — our radio station changing spots on the FM dial from 102.7 to 100.5, and in keeping with the pageantry of the moment, Bruce cooked up this episode to be twice as long as isusual.  If you missed it the first time around, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
