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 program 896 features electronic pop (Monsters of Folk, Broken Bells, Jónsi); New Orleans and Memphis soul (Queen Latifah with Mark 45 King, the Meters, Rufus Thomas, Al Green); talking drums and brass (Paul Simon, Gangbé Brass Band, Revolutionary Snake Ensemble); Ensemble Signal's new recording of Steve Reich's "Double Sextet"; and new music from the Murray, Allen & Carrington Power Trio, Allen Toussaint and Sara Watkins.

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