CFRO Co-op Radio in Vancouver, BC, Canada
102.7 FM 9:30-10:30 PM to support us worldwide.

April 11 is our big Accordion Africa special, as part of Co-op Radio's spring fund drive. Then on April 18 we go for the history of Rock 'n' Accordion. Please go to and click on the subtle "Donate" link on top to share funds with Accordion Noir's beloved Co-op Radio.

Thanks to donors and Co-op Radio Members, we've had a lot of feedback and support lately from all over the world, (And our first sustaining member!) and we are grateful. We've got Accordion Noir buttons/badges/pins to prove it. $1 or so for a swell Kat playing the Koncertina pin! (See or below, for more on donating.)

peace bruce and rowan

Please consider a donation to keep our little radio station alive. Co-op Radio is completely sponsored by listeners, no huge government or corporate funds. Each show asks its supporters to kick in to keep the whole affair on the air. We need to earn $700 a year for our share of CFRO's budget. Get an online membership at, and tell them Accordion Noir sent you. Please email us if you donate too, so we make sure squeezeboxes get credit!

If you make a donation, you can win a prize!

Grand Prize: for the first "Omnindirectional" donation to CFRO of $102.7 OR a monthly sustainer donation of $10 (or more).
Jason Webley's totally out of print, "How Big is Tacoma/Cereal at Night" 7" (with CD version too) single from 2005. Very cool, limited edition (#146 of 1,111). Collectible blue/pink vinyl (what's that?), with a scratch-n-sniff card (that does not smell like Tacoma), awesome.

Every other Donor should get a prize to chose from. I don't know how we'll do it if you're far-far-away, but here in town, we'll come to you if need be.

CFRO Membership Levels:
