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 1,018 features something new from guitarist Julian Lage; visionary composer Charles Ives’s "Washington's Birthday (Winter)"; social and political commentary (the Temptations, Cass McCombs, T Bone Burnett); Cassandra Wilson's cover of Son House's "Death Letter," the opening theme of the third and best season of HBO's "True Detective"; variations on the melody to Linda Creed and Thom Bell's "People Make the World Go Round" (Steinski, the Stylistics, De La Soul); lots of brass (Sam Rivers's Rivbea All-Star Orchestra, Bembeya Jazz, Toumani Diabaté's Symmetric Orchestra); and Mozambiqué dance rhythms (Pello el Afrokán y Su Ritmo Mozambiqué, Orishas, the Afro-Cuban All Stars).

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.
