Death Valley Radio Program 878

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.

DVR program 878 features brand-new tracks from Carrie Rodriguez with Bill Frisell, Lucinda Williams with Greg Leisz and Bill Frisell, and Charles Lloyd with, um, Bill Frisell and Greg Leisz; world rhythms (Juana Molina and Gaby Kerpel of Argentina, the Colombia-based quintet Sidestepper); and music from Ennio Morricone’s score to U Turn, Oliver Stone’s film adaptation of John Ridley’s novel Stray Dogs.

Also: new cuts from Peter Case with Ben Harper, Luther Dickinson with Jason Isbell, Callenberg, Pacific Harp Project, Three Cane Whale and trumpeter Avishai Cohen’s debut on the ECM label.

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