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 1,022 features Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, recording as Better Oblivion Community Center; noir radio (Chris Whitley, Beat Circus, Billy Bob Thornton with Legendary Shack Shakers); songs about Ireland (Richard Thompson, Heidi Talbot, Patty Griffin, the Gloaming); boxers (Peter Case, Todd Snider); the relentless sound of throbbing synth basses (Ben Kingsley and UNKLE, Jesus Jones, Afel Bocoum, Lobi Traoré and Damon Albarn, Bargou 08); Nate Wooley's new "Seven in the Woods," an extended piece featuring Mary Halvorson, Susan Alcorn and Ryan Sawyer; social and political commentary (Patty Griffin, T Bone Burnett, Elvis Costello & the Imposters); and something new from Adam Carroll.

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

Death Valley Radio is dedicated to the memory of my wife Valerie. And sometimes I miss Maria Alessandra more than words can say.
