AccNoir-2011-04-27, Almost May Day (now that it's June)

(great deals on apologies here at Accordion Noir for how behind we've been on putting these shows up. I'm afraid we're faced with a deluge to catch up now. It's been busy, but Rowan's back from Europe and Bruce's kids are out of town, so we should be posting like mad and overwhelming our podcast listeners. Save these up for a rainy day if you like.)

(also, sorry about the distortion on this show. The sound-levels weren't working properly, or I wasn't working them right. Either way, sorry.)
