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 946 features acoustic blues (Buddy Guy, Sherman Holmes, Eric Bibb, Muddy Waters, Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup, Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, Lyle Lovett); Country & Western standards (George Jones, Willie Nelson, Buck Owens and His Buckaroos, the Desert Rose Band); jazz-flavored Americana (Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan, Matt Wilson's Honey and Salt quintet, Orrin Evans with Marvin Sewell); and new music from This Is the Kit (an ad hoc group led by singer-songwriter Kate Stables), guitarist Jon Stickley, Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen, guitarist Ethan Sherman, multi-instrumentalist and composer Roscoe Mitchell; and Uruguayan-American composer Sergio Cervetti.

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