Accordion Noir Radio

Accordion Noir is a new all-accordion radio show on Co-Op Radio 102.7 FM in Vancouver. Hosted by Bruce Triggs and Rowan Lipkovits, each show features accordion music from a dizzying range of styles and genres. Last Friday’s playlist alone included tunes from Esteban (Steve) Jordan, Neko Case, Gogol Bordello, Pee Wee King, Guy Klucevsek, and even Marlene Dietrich. Now that’s my kind of radio show.

You can listen online, but unfortunately for those of us in North America, the show’s current time slot is Friday mornings between 2-3am Pacific. (They’re hoping to add a podcast soon so you can listen on-demand.) Sounds like I have a new excuse for coming in late to work on Fridays…


  1. Thanks for the kind words! I’d kind of intended to hold off on the media blitz until we got the podcast going and people would actually likely be able to listen to us, but… maybe you can reiterate it once that’s live 8)

    In the meantime, we are thrilled to have come across /Let’s Polka/ — which will give us plenty to banter about between songs!

    Cheers, the accordion-zombie from the zombiewalk.

  2. We’ll definitely spread the word once you have the podcasts up. (We’ll also be among the first to subscribe.) Keep squeezin’!
