Death Valley Radio


Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious.

In this age of bland radio programming (both commercial and non-) and automated music services, DVR is still built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time.

Each two-hour edition of Death Valley Radio airs at on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM ET.

Death Valley Radio can also be heard at on Saturdays at 10:00 PM ET and Wednesdays at 10:00 AM ET.

DVR 867 features Ben Monder and Paul Motian's unconventional reading of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'"; music in the key of Reich; and some sage advice from Ray Charles, Joe Tex, Rufus Thomas, the Soul Children, Bonnie Raitt and the Iceman, Jerry Butler.

Also: new tracks from Hamilton de Holanda, Vinicius Cantuária with Melody Gardot, Jane Antonia Cornish with Decoda, Paul Hemmings, and Engine Room Favourites.

This week's holiday message, courtesy of the ever-cheerful Rev. J.M. Gates: While you are getting ready for Christmas, the undertaker, the jailer, the lawyer and the police are all getting ready for you.

Death Valley Radio is dedicated to the memory of my wife Valerie.
