Accordion Noir radio playlist 2012-10-24: Flagrante Octubre

AccNoir 2012-10-24

From ten years ago, here’s episode 309 of CFRO Co-op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program.  I’m overselling the seasonal spookiness of this particular playlist with the illustration; it looks like a pretty normcore set of alt-accordion songs — our usual mix of styles and genres from different parts of the world… at least until the full moon emerges from behind a cloud and it starts sprouting fangs and fur!  If you missed it the first time around, you can enjoy listening to this episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:

Bruce: Not sure what’s up, this is only 1/2 hour’s worth.
Rowan: It’s far from impossible that you might well have talked for a half hour.
