Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-10-12: Octoberpus’s Garden

AccNoir 2022-10-12
Meet Leah Kiser of Artifact Fine Art in Casa Grande

Please find attached this week’s fresh episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, where we share the greatest variety of squeezebox music from all over the planet! If I was challenged to interpret the theme of the Octoberpus I would decline… I know Bruce well enough at this point. I just try to find artwork to match his arbitrary and capricious title, without necessarily expecting that it bears any relation to the contents of the recording. Speaking of which… 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:
