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 1,040 features summer days and rainy nights (the Beach Boys, Ry Cooder, M. Ward, Chris Isaak, Michael Nesmith, Joni Mitchell, Jim McAuley and Nels Cline, the UVA Percussion Ensemble, the John Coltrane Quartet); the great state of Louisiana (Tony Joe White, Jerry Reed, Ralph "Soul" Jackson); that Hi Records sound (Syl Johnson, R.L. Burnside, Sherman Holmes); and new tracks from Patty Griffin, Ordinary Elephant, Joseph Daley, Keith Jarrett, and fiddler Martin Hayes with contemporary string quartet Brooklyn Rider.

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

"The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection ... and that one is prepared in the end to be defeated and broken up by life, which is the inevitable price of fastening one's love upon other human individuals." — From George Orwell's "Reflections on Gandhi"

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