Accordion Noir radio playlist 2013-05-29: Rowan’s Reconstruction

May 21, 2023


It seems that your humble co-host, pictured above in full regalia at an ex’s turn of the century wedding, extraordinarily presented this, the 338th episode of CFRO Co-Op Radio’s Accordion Noir broadcast of our … well, our gradually-unfolding program for accordion world domination. (We’ve been sidetracked by a few recent developments, but rest assured our plan is getting back on track.)  The contents of this program appear to be a mix of music from regular host Bruce and Rowan’s wife’s Jen’s music collections, with no particular thematic connection beyond accordionicity, but featuring plenty of great music nonetheless.  If you missed it the first time around or would appreciate a refresh, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
