Accordion Noir radio playlist 2023-01-11: The 11th of One

January 12, 2023

Hot off the radio presses, here’s last night’s episode of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, featuring the deepest cuts and dankest selections in the very small world of accordion radio. This week’s episode lacks a coherent overall theme other than to share a set of great squeezebox tunes with you, so hopefully the self-evident excellence of the characteristically broad and global span of the musical selections will convince you that’s all the theme we need! 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:

AccNoir–2023-01-11, The 11th of One

Anyone in the Chicago Area interested in helping an Afghan Refugee child get an accordion, message Bruce on social media or here.

Bruce has one last copy of the 2023 Accordion Babes Calendar and Album available in Vancouver.
Message Bruce on social media at AccordionBruce on Social Media. Or in a comment here to set up a delivery.
January rate is $20, or $40 with a copy of his Accordion Revolution book (regularly $25).

A particularly fine Playlist if I do say so. Some great tunes with a nice set of particularly wild time swings in the middle, followed by a powerful set at the end. Choice Noir. (Bruce):
