Death Valley Radio Program 887

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 887 features electronic pop (Vampire Weekend, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Juana Molina, Ry Cooder with Juliette Commagere); Wadada Leo Smith and John Lindberg’s tribute to AEC bassist Malachi Favors; music from Vijay Iyer and Wadada Leo Smith’s new seven-part suite inspired by the paintings and writings of Indian modern artist Nasreen Mohamedi; a double quartet led by composer, bassist and cellist Henning Sieverts; and new music from M. Ward, Andrew Bird, the Canadian electric-guitar quartet Instruments of Happiness, the Haitian ensemble Lakou Mizik, and Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil recorded live in concert.

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