Downhome with Howling Dick Ep 129 (Unfettered And Alive)

The tragic events in Paris last weekend inspire Howling to dedicate an hour of blues and roots either from French artists or inspired by the city. Along the way he suffers Google translate and tries his best to strangle the French language but does his best to send a tribute to the brave Parisians. Vive La France!

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, Fri Nov 29 & Tues Dec 2


I’m sure it’s unimaginative of me to program Charles Ives’ Holidays Symphony, climaxing out of starvation gloom into the New England Transcendentalism of the Thanksgiving movement, on this week’s Updoc—8PM Friday and noon next Tuesday, Boston Red Sox time—but, hey, it’s a great if kinda long piece of music, and the show starts off with a set featuring pianist Orrin Evans with a trio and a quintet including especially the smokin’ tenor work of JD Allen, so there. Speaking of tenors, John Coltrane and Archie Shepp share a colloquy on a new release of Acknowledgment, and Sonny Rollins and Coleman Hawkins demonstrate Almost All the Things They Are on a live recording from 1963. What else? Chucho Valdes’ reboot of Irakere, Eddie Palmieri featuring Joe Locke, and some up and coming tenor playing from Noah Preminger and a fine rhythm section: among other things, they Try a Little Tenderness. As should we all, in this time of war, deceit, treachery, monstrosity, braggadocio, and last but I hope not least the light and warmth and gratitude for the sheer illimitable gift of Being we can garner in our hearts and amid family and friends, wheresoever we may be, in the November of the year of our Lord this year and onward.

Death Valley Radio Program 866

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.

Death Valley Radio can be heard here at taintradio on Saturdays at 10:00 PM ET and Wednesdays at 10:00 AM ET.

Death Valley Radio program 866 features Billy Bob Thornton’s story of a badly injured dog and a tormented man trying to do the right thing; Angaleena Presley’s feisty declaration of independence; a newly released alternate take of Bob Dylan’s “Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat”; Arthur “Big Boy” Crudup’s 1941 “Death Valley Blues”; Charlie Parker’s influence on Rudresh Mahanthappa, Ornette Coleman, Gang Starr, Double Dee and Steinski; and some good reasons not to vote, courtesy of Living Colour and Jesus Jones. Also: J. Cole’s new remix of A Tribe Called Quest, Ben Monder’s “Dinosaur Skies,” and a 13-member ensemble led by Norwegian composer and saxophonist Mette Henriette.

Each week’s playlist will be archived until the end of time at deathvalleyradio.org.
