New York: Dontcha ya miss it?

There was music in the air–and in the subways.

Now there’s an Apple store on every corner and the entire city, every single block, is safe for children.

Merry Christmas to you too!

Norwegian Wood

Don’t even think about getting between a Norwegian and his wood pile.

Tonight we steal a page from the playbook of our colleagues here at the radio station—From the Forest’s Ryan and John. We’ll talk about a different forest-related topic, really different. Fire wood and woodpiles are almost sacred in Norway. And the burning season being upon us, we thought we’d see what it is we can learn from our Norwegian brothers and sisters. Don’t worry the accordions are stowed away safely in the cabin.

Join us tonight for a look at Norwegian wood and forest culture including axes, chain saws, wood stoves and the artistic implications of all that wood. Naturally, our narrative will be accompanied and illustrated by the dulcet sound of Norwegian accordions and the otherworldly voice that often go along with them.

Before the Accordion Babes. . .

Long before the Accordion Babes, we had Die Accordeon Babies, a “ladies” accordion orchestra from Vienna. They recorded their big hit, Tango Bolero, after Ravel, in 1939. After that, they seemed to have vanished into the mist, or was it the fog of war?

Join us tonight for Babies, Babes, and Boleros, all on the accordion.

Whoopee!

Whoopee John and more—larger than life accordionists tonight.  Gone but not forgotten.  Alright, mostly forgotten too, but not at In Heaven Thee Is No Beer, where we try to keep the flame alive.
