Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious. DVR is built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time. Death Valley Radio airs on WNTI on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM ET.
DVR 991 features spiritual matters (Ry Cooder, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Bobby McFerrin, Jim White, Daniel Bachman, Charles Lloyd & the Marvels with Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples); social and political commentary (Peter Case, Martin Simpson, Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash); African pop (Bombino, Fatoumata Diawara, Habib Koité & Bamada); John Coltrane's recently unearthed trio version of "Nature Boy"; and new tracks from David Davis & the Warrior River Boys, Steve Tibbetts, Meshell Ndegeocello, Joe Lovano & Dave Douglas's Sound Prints, and composer Jane Antonia Cornish.
Death Valley Radio is dedicated to the memory of my wife Valerie. And there's Maria Alessandra, lost forever twenty years ago.
