It’s still Black History month

At In Heaven There Is No Beer.   We feel that Black History was shortchanged, having been given the shortest month of the year for observations, celebrations and honors.  So we’ve extended things.  Join us tonight for our first annual February 30th show!  Accordions bustin’ out rom Soweto to the juke joints of Louisiana.

Dictators with Accordions

Remember him?  Idi Amin Dada.  Insane, riddled with syphilis, genocidal—but he played the accordion.  And we’ve got recordings!   Tonight, exclusively on In Heaven There Is No Beer, the American radio debut of the bipolar madman from Uganda.  And when the dictator plays, you better listen!

If accordions are outlawed. . .

Only outlaws will have accordions.

Tune in tonight on WIOX when In Heaven There Is No Beer combines resources with the Radio Trump to bring you radio in a post-truth world.

The new regime has, in no uncertain terms, banned the accordion as an instrument of subversion. The order reads, in part, “As is well known, the accordion is the musical instrument of choice to the most volatile, menacing and degenerate group of people ever to have washed up on the shores of our exceptional land—immigrants!” It goes on to cite early offenders, the Irish and Italians, through eastern Europeans and Scandinavians (at least they’re white) to Mexicans. And, last but not least, Canadians and their progeny the Acadians (Cajuns)—all of whom are descended ultimately, horror of horrors, from the French!

February is Black History Month

On the accordion. Join us as we celebrate the rich history of black accordionists from the great grand-daddy of ‘em all, Amadee Ardoin to Madame T, one of today’s emerging young stars—and an Accordion Babe! We’ll take you from the creole tradition of Louisiana to the townships of South Africa.

Don’t miss it and don’t this year’s Black History Month, because word on the street is that once the Republicans have safely gotten ride of public education, Medicare, Social Security and the Environmental Protection Agency, they’re coming after Black History.
