Accordion Noir radio playlist 2013-02-06: Old Klezmer for Ethan Minowitz

February 12, 2023


From ten years ago, here’s episode 322 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, on this occasion focusing on primarily, but not exclusively, Jewish music, as interpreted through squeezeboxes of various kinds.  If you missed its debut over the airwaves back in 2013, we got you covered — it’s available for online listening as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
