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 1,030 features rich men (Vampire Weekend, Gorillaz with Yasiin Bey and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, P.M. Dawn, the Beatles); Don Byron's funky cover of James Brown's "There It Is"; the sound of breathing (Juri Seo with the Argus Quartet, Antti Paalanen); Friction Quartet's new recording of a work written by Mark Mellits of the Common Sense Composers' Collective; high-pitched Andean lutes (Gustavo Santaolalla, Paul Simon with Los Incas, Gato Barbieri); and new cuts from G. Calvin Weston's Phoenix Orchestra, the Swedish trio Väsen, and Andrew Bird.

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.
