Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious. DVR is built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time. Death Valley Radio airs on WNTI on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM ET.
DVR 995 features summer songs (Bob Stewart with Taj Mahal, Luther Dickinson, Bobbie Gentry); acoustic blues and pre-blues (Jimmie Rodgers, Merle Haggard, Jorma Kaukonen, Chad Elliott, NRBQ); dharma blues (Peter Rowan, Patty Griffin); and new tracks from Charles Lloyd & the Marvels + Lucinda Williams, Richmond Fontaine, Steve Tibbetts, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Marc Copland, Matthew Shipp and Sara Serpa.
Death Valley Radio is dedicated to the memory of my wife Valerie. And then there's Maria Alessandra, lost to me forever twenty years ago.
