That Damn Accordion !! & Peter and the Squirrel – Show 9 Ultimate Movies Broadcast

Co-host Mats Finnborn of Sweden introduces this month’s featured works on Show 9 of The Ultimate Movies Broadcast.

Larry Kosowan: Poems “The Pillar Candle,” and “Roads to Peace with Poems” and prose “Peter and the Squirrel.”

Lorraine Dmitrovic: “That Damn Accordion !!” a memory from her youth, Lorraine’s encounter with the accordion.

(Lorraine: “But now, in 2017, I love the accordion! Some things chase you for years and finally catch up with you. Take the ghost of my damn accordion. Last week, Larry Kosowan e-mailed me a photo of an accordion he found in a Toronto Humane Society thrift store for $30. Something awoke within me when I saw his photo.

Wednesday (April 26) last week I saw on Kijiji an accordion for $200 that resembled the one from my youth. Wednesday night I order the exact 3 books (still in print!) I used in my childhood lessons, and a music stand, from Amazon. The guy from Peterborough drops the accordion off at our house at 4:15pm on Thursday, saving us the trip and gas money to his place. The books and music stand from Amazon arrive Friday a little after noon. I’ve never received anything so quickly from Amazon. Later Friday afternoon I record myself playing the accordion for the first time in about 40 years – and tacked it onto That Damn Accordion !! to share how my experience with the accordion has come full circle.  It’s certainly a meant-to-be, regarding accordions. And you know, I think my paternal grandparents are smiling down from Heaven. I’m finally a  “good accordion playing girl” again! So – “Opa!”

Mike Pearl’s musical choices from You Tube are frequently posted on The Ultimate Movies Page – Silents to New Releases facebook page.

Ravens are known to frequent battlefields in the aftermath of war.)
