Death Valley Radio Program 883

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 883 features Punch Brothers’ slightly skewed take on the Greek myth of Icarus and Daedalus; more train songs (Bukka White with Washboard Sam, Robert Johnson, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters); sad memories (Uncle Tupelo, Richmond Fontaine, Funeral Bonsai Wedding); back stabbers (Son House, the Undisputed Truth, the O’Jays); Eric Hofbauer’s interpretation of Igor Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring”; and new music from Michael Daves, Bilal, Frostlake and Mavis Staples.

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