Death Valley Radio

Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious.

Death Valley Radio can be heard on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM ET on WNTI.

Program 1,056 features surf guitars (Bill Frisell's Big Sur Quintet, the Raybeats, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives); a hint of rockabilly (Julian Lage, Lee Ann Womack, Patty Griffin); gambling men (Hank Williams, Buddy Miller); the meaning of life (Tom Waits, Phoebe Bridgers, Sara Watkins, Gillian Welch); Daniel Bachman's tribute to Virginia's Rappahannock River; minimalist mallet percussion (Taktus, the Philip Glass Ensemble with Sean McCall); and something new from Bonnie Prince Billy, Cass McCombs, Shana Cleveland and Terri Lyne Carrington with Aaron Parks, Matthew Stevens and Esperanza Spalding.

That's Death Valley Radio, where the party never ends....

"No pain unless necessary, but if necessary, pain." — Aunt Lydia, Margaret Atwood's The Testaments
