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.

DVR program 910 opens with two songs about walls (Tom Russell and the Upside Down Cowboy Band, Anaïs Mitchell with Greg Brown) and features small-time criminals (Chicago Farmer, Todd Snider, John Hiatt); party music with a brain (Rip Slyme, Gorillaz, Aterciopelados, Calle 13 with John Leguizamo, Macaco); and new music from the Vancouver-based septet Fond of Tigers, Bob Weir with members of the National, Sara McDonald and the NYChillharmonic, and pianist Bobby Avey.

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