Accordion Noir Polka PRA

1:07 minutes (1.11 MB)

This is a very short podcast!

We've already been asked once not to break records on the air. We're all about juvenilia here, but maybe we give in too easily to the mainstream fear of schmaltz?

Let us know what you think.

Oh! That's the Stairway to Motzart Polka, by the Serfs. Awesome dudes: http://localmotives.org/?date=2004-11-26

Rowan and Bruce spread rumors and play only CD's we got this week, because the mixer hook-up for the lap-top with its 3500 song library is broken! That's why we need your donations! Glad we got a lot of new stuff to play. Rowan got a free ticket to They Might Be Giants and took notes.
