Welcome to the Accordion Line Podcast, your connection to the people squeezing the bellows. I’m Elwood Bergman, and this is a short preview of the show to come, as well as an acknowledgement of the people who helped make it possible.
The Accordion Line is the newest squeezebox-themed show on the planet! So you may be asking, “Who are you?” and “Why are you doing this?” Fair Enough.
I was born and raised in upstate New York, not far from Woodstock. I’ve been a music lover from an early age, but somehow ended up becoming a truck driver. So no, I’m not an accomplished accordionist. I’ve never owned an accordion. In fact, these hands have never even touched one, but that’s all about to change and I’d like to take you with me on this ride.
Every other week, for half an hour, I’m going to interview squeezebox players of all varieties. I’m going to take you to festivals and significant places. I’m going to make miniature documentaries with the most interesting bits that I’ve learned, and I’m going to answer questions from you, the listeners.
So go ahead, and subscribe to the Accordion Line Podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. Then you’ll automatically get our show delivered to your device for free, starting September 13th. You can also follow us on SoundCloud, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, and subscribe to our YouTube channel, if you want to.

(My sister did NOT shoot or edit any of my videos, because she’s 800 miles away, but… ) If your company needs a professional film crew in or around North Carolina, she works for a top-notch company whose work you’ve already seen on TV and in the theaters. Email me, and I’ll get you connected. firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are unfamiliar with Tim Ferriss, I would recommend his book, The Four Hour Workweek, for everybody. It is one of my all-time favorites. The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated)
