Death Valley Radio

Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious.

Since 1996 DVR has been built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time.

NEW TIME, SAME NIGHT: Death Valley Radio airs at WNTI on Tuesdays at 8:00 PM ET.

DVR 952 features the Devil and Donald Trump, courtesy of Robert Johnson, the Bootleggers, Radney Foster, the Cactus Blossoms, Stanton Moore with Cyril Neville, Robert Plant's Band of Joy, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, Steve Earle & the Dukes, Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood; gamblers (Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan); folk-flavored pop (Sandy Danny, Ólöf Arnalds, Richard Thompson, Heidi Talbot, Emily Mure); an excerpt from Terry Riley's 1964 minimalist classic "In C," as arranged and performed by an 18-member musical collective called Brooklyn Raga Massive; and new music from Justin Adams, David Rawlings, Bill Frisell and Thomas Morgan, the GVSU New Music Ensemble and Night Tree.

This month we commemorate the tragic events of September 11, 1973, the day on which the US-backed Chilean military began its long reign of terror and President Salvador Allende took his own life...or was murdered.

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