I am guest-hosting WRIR's Cause and Effect Show today. It is one of my favorites to host and to listen to. Each week the host selects an artist than digs deep into the bands and artists that influenced the featured performer and in turns the bands and artists they influenced. Stream the show every Saturday from 1 PM to 3 PM @
Hey Listeners,

Haberdasher hosting Cause and Effect this afternoon. I’m going to do something a little different today and instead of focusing on a band, or a label, or a genre I am going to focus on an instrument. To be more specific – the accordion. We’re going to explore how the accordion made its way to popular music and even rock ‘ n’ roll. This is no classroom so we’ll mostly focus on the tunes, but we’ll share some factoids and history as well.

We’ll hear polkas, Cajun, conjunto, klezmer, zydeco and other genres on our journey. We’ll talk about the excellent box set (one of the first box sets and world music collections I ever purchased) Planet Squeezebox and we’ll hear accordion music from France, Ireland (it’s almost St. Patty’s Day), South Africa, Mexico, the US and more.

We’ll also talk about the documentary According Rising since the Academy Awards are Sunday and we’ll hear bands like They Might Be Giants, the Subdudes, Buckwheat Zydeco and many others.

Tune in and enjoy.
