Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-12-07: Accordion Noir’s (counts to self…) Sixteenth Anniversary!

December 8, 2022

Bruce was feeling the weight of the years this week, as you can see from his song selections, not just because we are getting old, but — because Accordion Noir itself is getting old! This week’s episode was the 16th anniversary of its first going on the air back in December of 2006 (and I gotta say, we’d all be feeling a lot older still if we were still broadcasting from 2-3 in the morning like we were at that time!) Still squeezy after all those years. 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:
