A quick interruption of my hiatus to let you know I'll be on DJ Rupture's WFMU show Mudd Up! tonight 7-8 pm, talking about one of my favorite obsessions, accordion music. Expect some squeezebox shredding from different corners of the Americas.
Here is Rupture's hyperbolic and blush-inducing description:
Accordion lovers of the world unite! Or at least tune in this evening to DJ Rupture's show from 7-8pm, as special guest, writer Carolina
GomezGonzalez, will give us a tour of the accordion styles across Latin America. GomezGonzalez co-authored the first guidebook on Latino culture in NYC, Nueva York: the Complete Guide to Latino Life in the Five Boroughs, and will be breaking out rare vinyl and wonderful stories of the squeezebox as it travels around Latin America.
