By pre-recording these episodes of our weekly hour-long CFRO radio program, as he has been doing since the start of the pandemic, the Accordion Noir host Bruce Triggs has been in a very different situation from that of the previous decade-and-a-half of live broadcasts: now he has the option of listening to them after they […]…
