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 Saturday, June 25, at 10:00 PM ET and Wednesday, June 29, at 10:00 AM ET.
Death Valley Radio will continue to be heard at wnti.org on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM ET.
DVR program 895 features break-up songs (Patty Loveless, Sara Watkins, Dolly Parton); electric blues (James Blood Ulmer, William Bell, Charlie Musselwhite, R.L. Burnside); Western music (Asleep at the Wheel with Willie Nelson, Bill Frisell with Petra Haden, Michael Nesmith & the First National Band); the last song recorded by New Orleans pianist, songwriter, producer and arranger Allen Toussaint; and new cuts by Paul Simon, Big Thief, John Doe with Debby Harry, 9Bach, Pascal Schumacher and Florian Weber, Marissa Nadler and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.
Each week’s playlist will be archived until the end of time at deathvalleyradio.org.
