WE HANG OUR HEADS IN SHAME

The Piano Accordion is the official instrument of San Francisco.
This despite passionate advocacy from sensible people.
Per this article: The Board of Supervisors - AP Archive.
Apparently it was invented here in the city.

To Berliners goes the credit for creating the very first accordions, however.
A gentleman constructed one there in 1822, nearly a century before we added on to the compost heap of music.


I am not at all sure how I feel about that. Other than a peculiar sense of kinship with Berlin.


Accordion music is far better than karaoke.


I shall not post a video clip here.


This is a family blog.

Piano accordion, one-armed bandit, and television: quite a mixed legacy of San Francisco invention.
