Accordion Noir Radio etc?

The online universe of Accordion Noir continues to evolve, here’s the current status (updated in 2020 or so):

We’ve been doing the Accordion Noir Show since 2006. Vancouver Co-Op Radio (CFRO 100.5 FM) is Accordion Noir’s terrestrial home where we do the real-live radio show that gets magically transmitted around the world. Listen every Wednesday night from 10-11 PM (Vancouver time) on Co-op Radio’s live-stream. Shows are then posted for download/streaming with playlists on this blog and at the Internet Archives.

Subscribe yourself to the Apple or Android podcast so you don’t miss an episode 🪗

Accordion Noir's Giant Puppet Accordion. Everybody needs one.
Click here to listen to the “Many Voices of Accordion Noir” promo for the show!

You can still check out the first six years of Accordion Noir‘s back-catalogue on our creaky old site too.

Bruce’s book Accordion Revolution: A People’s History of the Accordion from the Industrial Revolution to Rock and Roll was released into the world in 2019. Get yours here.

We’re also on Twitter at @AccordionBruce and @AccordionNoir

    Hi, looking to find out more about an old Meinel & Herold accordion we have…..any suggestions?

      I’m not sure I know any more than what’s here. It’s notoriously difficult to track information about the thousands of old companies that made accordions. Can’t some of the authors of the 50,000 books on guitars take some time off for other instruments?

      You might ask at this active UK forum filled with knowledgeable folks:
