Accordion Noir

I've just added a link to a radio broadcast, "Accordion Noir." Don't be afraid of the "Accordion" part. It is a real hoot. You can also download Podcasts on iTunes for free. There are a mind boggling number of different type of "accordions," which are not all called accordions but fall into the category of reeds and bellows (as opposed to harmonicas which have no bellows).

I learned all this from a man in Key West who was sitting by himself on a dock playing a concertina. I think I will get one and learn to play.

Maybe I can get them to post these photos on their website.


  1. Greetings from Rowan of Accordion Noir! How did you find out about us? The concertina player seems to be on the same wavelength as us, but I don't think we're in communication with him through the secret squeezebox underground so you likely had a second source 8)

    It might be possible for us to find a use for one of the photographs to accompany a podcast -- since we mostly work in an audio medium, visuals are lovely but we don't really know what to do with them. Who knows though -- we've been discussing business cards and hope to promote other accordion events. Sooner or later, I'm sure we'll be able to squeeze them in!

  2. I found you on iTunes. What a surprise and treat that was. I tell everyone to listen for a really good time. I want to learn to play the concertina so that I can get on the show. Maybe in a few years. . . .

    I'll be listening and thanks.
