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.

DVR program 908 opens with the Becca Stevens Band covering Steve Winwood's "Higher Love" and features Meshell Ndegeocello's story of a serial killer whose anger and evil excite her; electronic pop (Rubik, Romare, Frank Ocean); sweet soul music (Percy Sledge, Robert Plant, Tyrone Davis); contemporary interpretations of folk songs and hymns (Charles Lloyd with Bill Frisell, Serge Krakowski, Michel Benita with Manu Codjia); and new music from Joanna Wallfisch, Cass McCombs, Martin Archer & Story Tellers, Sinikka Langeland's Starflowers with Trio Mediæval, and Tigran Hamasyan with Arve Henriksen, Eivind Aarset and Jan Bang.

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