Accordion Noir radio playlist 2012-12-05: Rowan’s Faves on Little Richard’s Birthday

December 11, 2022


From ten years ago, here’s episode 314 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast.  In our early years, we would devote the month of December to celebratory year-in-review fare, as part of the festivities surrounding our own anniversary!  Starting in late summer, co-host Rowan would go back and start re-listening to episodes we had aired that year in search of his absolute favorites of tunes we had previously broadcast, to present a creme-de-la-creme victory lap at year’s end.  This is that episode for 2012.  In case you missed it the first time around, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtsey of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
