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 877 features a Mardi Gras mix (Dr. John, the Band, Allen Toussaint, Luther Dickinson, Sid Selvidge, Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Paul Reddick); gospel-inflected jazz (Geof Bradfield, Riverside, Charles Lloyd with Bill Frisell); life in the fast lane (Conor Oberst, the Beatles and Corey Harris, who's got money on his mind); the Bakersfield sound (Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakam, Buddy Miller with Kacey Musgraves, Caitlin Cary & Thad Cockrell); and some sweet soul music (Johnnie Taylor, Candi Staton, Otis Clay, James Carr).

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