Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-04-29: Latin American Accordion Fundraiser Special

May 11, 2017

unnamed

Two days after our final regular late-night broadcast (odd how he keeps qualifying that, isn’t it?), we were back on the air for the 22nd time, in another time slot that also wasn’t our regular time slot… doing a special daytime preview in conjunction with our fellow CFRO radio program “Rhumbamerica” to help demonstrate to our new pre-midnight audiences a new show they might tune into.  Making things even more exciting, broadcasting on during daystar hours put us in a position to host our first ever live guests on the show: Doug Schmidt on bandoneon with Martin Nemkovsky on guitar.  At its original web host this very Latinx playlist was enjoyed 12984 times, and we hope that future generations of the accordion-curious will go on to enjoy it at its new host at the Internet Archive.  Our apologies — the playlist falls apart a little toward the end, but the excellent music continues all the way through!  Enjoy!

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-04-27: Last Late-night Episode!

May 10, 2017

SFTMC_DA8_lg.jpg
Is it possible we only broadcast 21 episodes of Accordion Noir Radio in the middle of the night, from 2-3 am, following the late-night electronic music show The Art Of Beatz with the only format of radio program (much to their delighted hilarity) even more niche and underground than their own?  Well, the numbers prove it: here is episode number 21 of Accordion Noir Radio, and it indeed marks our final regular broadcast in our original time slot.  At its original online home, the recording of this episode was enjoyed 13437 times — a triumph, since we were after all seeking an international online listenership to counter the somewhat deflated live audience we could expect at 2 am locally.  From now on, you can enjoy it over at the Internet Archive!  And here’s its playlist:

It took a little while for the smoke to clear, but here it is, the 20th episode of Accordion Noir Classic, from way back on April 20th of 2007 — still, yes, in the middle of the night from 2-3 am.  It garnered 12495 listens at its original host over a ten year period, and we hope it eventually accumulates at least that many at its new home over at the Internet Archive.  Here, more or less, is its playlist, so you can keep up while enjoying listening to the MP3 download of the vintage show:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-04-13 : Grab bag!

May 5, 2017

accordion-collage-tickets_1774_18036_222x222.jpgForging ever onwards through our back stacks, here’s Accordion Noir Radio episode number 19 from way back in mid-April, 2007!  Originally enjoyed some 13402 times at its original online host, future generations will be able to continue enjoying it via permanent hosting at the Internet Archive.  Despite our, you know, typical strict adherence to restrictive and exclusive themes (“all songs must contain free-reed aerophone” is a theme, right?), this episode appears to have expressly been a bit of a variety show grab-bag by design.  And here, the playlist proves it!

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2007-04-06: The Belgium Show

May 3, 2017

3573318471We’re back with more cream from our back archives, the first of our grand arbitrarily-themed episodes — Accordion Noir Radio episode number 18, from way back on April 6th, 2007.  Douglas Adams would have a hard time discussing this episode in mixed company, as its subject is that culturally-split low country known as Belgium, which boasted (for whatever reason we couldn’t adequately ascertain) amazing accordion recording publishing out of all proportion to the size of its population, leading to its being the first — if not most obvious — country to be so honoured with an exclusive hour of our program.  But you can hear us boggle, speculate fruitlessly and furrow our brows in the recording: it was a popular episode at its original host, racking up some 12584 logged listens (maybe every Belgian accordionist stopped by to listen once!) and you can now find it into perpetuity as an MP3 download hosted at the Internet Archive.
