We’ll be listening to two hours of diabetic musicians and singers (you’ll be utterly surprised, not to say shocked and amazed!), and “outing” diabetic achievers in other realms of endeavor—the arts. literature, politics and even Russian dictators who just happened to be diabetic.

Movies on the radio!

Don’t be so surprised. At In Heaven There Is No Beer, we pride ourselves in breaking down artificial media barriers.  You will recall our grounds breaking Paint-by-numbers on the radio.  Then there was Dance instruction on the radio  (tango and waltz)  Now, Movies on the radio.

Tonight, in it’s radio debut, the new documentary film, Accordions Rising:

The film, by writer and director Roberta Cantow, documents the recent and new found acceptance, indeed, ascendancy of the accordion in contemporary American popular music and culture.

In addition to reviewing the film and dipping into the soundtrack (sampling?), we will have the filmmaker, Roberta Cantow herself, calling in to answer questions and give us some inside information on her creation.
