Death Valley Radio

Death Valley Radio is a format-free program for the musically curious. Launched in the spring of 1996, DVR is still built by hand, non-algorithmically — one set at a time.

Each edition of Death Valley Radio airs at WNTI on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM ET.

DVR program 945 features advice from Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, the Marvelettes, Percy Sledge, Joe Tex, Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison and B.B. King; dub bass lines (Les Amazones d'Afrique, Meshell Ndegeocello, William S. Burroughs with Dub Spencer & Trance Hill); and new music from Dan Auerbach, Cody ChesnuTT, Eivind Opsvik's Overseas, the string trio Hear in Now, the Vancouver-based septet Sick Boss, Rich Krueger, Conor Oberst, Aimee Mann, bassist Ben Allison, and pianists Aruán Ortiz and Ahmad Jamal.

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