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 929 features Tommy James & the Shondells' recording of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich's pathetic but fun garage-rock classic "Hanky Panky"; surf-rock instrumentals (Bill Frisell's Big Sur Quintet, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, the Chantays, the Raybeats, Marc Ribot); south of the border Spanish guitars (Alvin Youngblood Hart, Chip Taylor & Carrie Rodriguez, Caitlin Cary & Thad Cockrell, Flaco Jiménez with Dwight Yoakam); and new music from Glenn Kotche and Darin Gray, recording as On Fillmore, Jesca Hoop with Blake Mills, guitarists Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, pianist Satoko Fujii, and trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith's Golden Quintet.

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