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 899 features Bruce Hornsby's new four-minute biography of Franz Kafka; sacred and secular gospel (William Bell, Bettye LaVette, Buddy Miller, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama, the Staple Singers, the Hightower Brothers, the Valentinos); the joys of handclapping (They Might Be Giants, the Meters, A Tribe Called Quest, Sly & the Family Stone); and new cuts from the Afro-Haitian Experimental Orchestra, Bombino, Aziza Brahim, Kel Assouf and the Matty Harris Double Septet.

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