Death Valley Radio

Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious. Launched in the spring of 1996, 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 926 features Satan (Robert Plant's Band of Joy, Steve Earle, James Blood Ulmer); desert blues (Duke Garwood, Chris Whitley, John Lee Hooker, Tinariwen, Bombino, Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara); trumpeters Wadada Leo Smith and Verneri Pohjola; wind instruments and robots (Phillip Bimstein, Caleb Sampson, Bang on a Can All-Stars and David Longstreth, Akropolis Reed Quintet and JacobTV); and new music from Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, Jesca Hoop with Blake Mills, Son Volt and Alison Krauss.

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