Accordion Noir radio playlist 2013-04-03: April Fools Again

March 31, 2023


From ten years ago, here’s episode 331 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast, this time featuring a very light dusting of April Fool’s folly sprinkled over a nutritious mix of historical and contemporary accordion musics representing different musical traditions from all over the world.  If you missed it the first time around (or would simply like a refresher!) you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
