Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-11-23: Prepare for Bandcamp Friday Two Weeks Early!

November 24, 2022

Paper Foldable accordion calendar

Once a month, on Bandcamp Friday — the magical first Friday of the month! — the Bandcamp e-storefront hosts a sale of sorts for the digital music sold there. The price doesn’t actually go down, but the company’s share of the revenue goes to the recording artists, so it’s a little perk for them. We devote roughly one episode every month to #AccordionBandcamp, because getting musicians paid their fair share has never been easy, and Covid has been making it even harder for years now. In any event, there’s another such occasion coming up soon, but Bruce has another theme lined up for its week’s episode of our weekly alt-squeezebox broadcast out of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio. So we celebrated December’s Bandcamp Friday early this week! 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:

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce) — actually, now late in 2022, it seems that Bruce has given up on Twitter entirely, and you can find both entities instead on Mastodon, at and — , Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fansthe Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle. Cheers & squeeze on!
