DEATH VALLEY RADIO 790 January 19, 2014
This week's show is dedicated to the memory of my wife Valerie, who died five years ago on January 18.
Death Valley Radio 790 opens with raw secular gospel from the Isley Brothers, James Brown and Bo Diddley, then tells the stories of Iron Ore Betty, One-Eyed Katie and Delia the Gamblin' Girl. Also: two selections from Angélique Kidjo's upcoming album dedicated to the women of Africa, and something new from Aa. (That's pronounced "BIG A, little a.")
