Accordion Noir radio playlist 2013-05-01: May Noir

May 1, 2023

Happy May Day, comrades! Here’s an archival episode (334) from this date ten years back of our weekly alt-accordion radio program on CFRO Co-Op Community Radio! It doesn’t actually appear to have that much to do with its occasion, but it’s still a solid specimen of the genre-agnostic squeezebox programming we uniquely serve up, week after week! If you missed it the first time around, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
