Death Valley Radio

Death Valley Radio, a format-free program for the musically curious, was launched in the spring of 1996. Twenty years and 900 shows later, DVR is still built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time.

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

DVR program 921 features some of Andy Hull and Robert McDowell's score to the 2016 film Swiss Army Man; pop and jazz standards (Rosemary Clooney's recording of "Black Coffee," Sidney Jacobs's "The Good Life," Steve Slagle's "Body and Soul"); Chess and Checker blues (Little Walter, Muddy Waters, Sonny Boy Williamson); and new music from the John Abercrombie Quartet, the Yelena Eckemoff Quintet, Brigitte DeMeyer and Will Kimbrough, David Luning and Ordinary Elephant.

Death Valley Radio is dedicated to the memory of my wife Valerie, who died on January 18, 2009.
