Accordion Noir radio playlist 2012-11-28: Accordion Rescue Squad

December 5, 2022


From ten years ago, here’s episode 313 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly Accordion Noir radio broadcast, showcasing an hour of the wildest and wooliest squeezebox music from all around the planet!  I don’t see a thematic connection deeper than that running through this episode’s selection of squeezy tunes, but is one really necessary?  (SPOILER WARNING: no, this is sufficient as it is.)  If you missed it the first time around or have simply forgotten how it went, you can enjoy listening to the broadcast as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
