Accordion Noir radio playlist 2013-05-22: Opening the Doors

May 21, 2023

From ten years ago, here’s episode 337 of CFRO Co-Op Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir broadcast.  Scanning the playlist, I don’t perceive any particular theme in that week’s programming — they’re all just splendid, accordionic tunes representing different musical traditions from different parts of the world.  That’s our go-to when we haven’t got something more special lined up, but even so it’s pretty extraordinary!  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:
