We do love to hear from you, so talk to us on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, if you want, or send a good old-fashioned hand-crafted e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Why you can even leave a review on your favorite podcasting service, if you are inspired to such action. Thanks for listening.
An all-new episode, all about wintertime in the Mojave. We are not having much of a winter this year, but perhaps we will again. ALSO: How to summon Yucca Man. AND: The Desert Oracle Mailbag. NEW TRACK from RedBlueBlackSilver tonight, plus the usual ruckus with the coyotes and the wind and the ravens and the Other Things.
Listen live on the radio in the High Desert, 10 p.m. Fridays on KCDZ 107.7 FM, or stream the program live from get the podcast via your favorite podcast provider.
What is it? Why are we always going on about it? Well here it is, Episode #020, take it. PLUS: Brendan Maze phones in, regarding the claims of labor violations at his High Desert online-fulfillment center. Enjoy three new tracks by Joshua Tree’s RedBlueBlackSilver: “Occulation,” “Virgo Cluster,” and “Radio Galaxy.” We shall direct you, shortly, to a listenable directory of these tracks.
Upon further consideration, the Pentagon UFO office’s involvement at Skinwalker Ranch is at least twice as weird as originally reported. Who is watching what, or vice versa? Also: Our occasional desert-community news-reading service. Listen live on the real-life radio in the High Desert: KCDZ 107.7 FM in Joshua Tree, or stream it online, or subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and Google Play and Podbay and the rest: DESERT ORACLE RADIO.
Two new tracks by Joshua Tree’s RedBlueBlackSilver will be heard on tonight’s program——”Comet Tail” and “Project Blue Book”——along with the following Kojak kind of sounds to soothe your nerves on a nervous desert highway:
It’s our first annual holiday show, with plenty of Christmas cheer (more or less) from our studios in downtown Joshua Tree. Were you good this year? Well then maybe Santa will bring you Pentagon proof of UFOs and maybe Santa is an alien too, why not? Why not gather ’round the festive Joshua tree with all the colorful insects and whatever else is hidden in the dead needle-tipped branches and join us, this one last time before the new year? Why not??
We’ve got our friend and Pioneertown neighbor Jeremy Corbell of ExtraordinaryBeliefs.com aboard the Desert Oracle Combat Training Center and he has just come back from Skinwalker Ranch, again, and yes that is the very “Utah ranch” discussed in the shocking (?) New York Times reports of a UFO program within the Department of Defense, a program that also involved Nevada billionaire Robert Bigelow and a secret warehouse full of mystery. And our high-desert soundscape wizard RedBlueBlackSilver cooked up a special soundtrack called “Amber” for this haunted conversation. (more…)
Is the entirety of California a desert now? Bone-dry air, howling Santa Ana winds, brutal fire-storms. People go mad in this kind of weather, even without a wildfire bearing down upon them. Also: We pay a visit to Hi-Desert artist & filmmakerKate McCabe at her Kidnap Yourself HQ on Yucca Mesa. (You can see new artworks by Kate McCabe & hear her spin records at the Querma de Joshua Tree event on Saturday night at the JT Retreat Center.)
Sounds you’ll hear tonight include field recordings of desert critters & barking dogs, our theme music by Pierre Langer, and three new pieces by Joshua Tree’s RedBlueBlackSilver: “Three Ghosts At the Apple Valley Inn,” “Ursa Major,” and “Cassini.” Also: “Heaven & Hell” by Donnie Drost (c) copyright 2010 Licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution (3.0) license.

Subscribe to the podcast where-ever you do such things … try Stitcher, or iTunes, or TuneIn. And stream the program live on Friday nights at 10 p.m., or BETTER YET be in the Mojave on a cold December night and tune in on the FM radio, KCDZ 107.7 FM around and across the High Desert.
We are back in the Desert Oracle studio high atop Antenna Hill, with a new episode all about that crackpot parked off the highway near Amboy while he tries to launch a steam-powered rocket 1,800 feet high to … prove the Earth is flat?
OH GOOD GRAVY, it’s Thanksgiving in the Desert and we’ve got the perfect holiday listening for the whole family—even Old Grandpa Marty, although he’ll never admit it, considering the way he is. Enjoy our First Annual DESERT ORACLE RADIO LIVE Holiday Broadcast, with tales of Death Valley and tribal memories of the flying saucers, Jeremy Corbell on Skinwalker Ranch and Patient Seventeen, and our old friend Brendan Maze on his Mojave Mindfulness Initiative. This show was recorded last week before a lively audience at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in downtown Palm Springs.
The lost episode, Lucky #13, has now been found. (Please ignore references to the Full Moon, which was last Friday night. But it’ll come around again, like everything.) Join us for tales of the Old Woman Meteorite and the mysterious warrior-priestesses & priests of the New World, along with a phone call from Brendan Maze, organizer of the Mojave Madness/Holy Harvest Halloween event a week or so back.
Don’t miss our very first live performance of DESERT ORACLE RADIO, at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in downtown Palm Springs. Free reserved seating (only a few seats remain!) is available here.
Sounds heard tonight include the usual desert scavengers recorded in the wild by your host and a new track, “Slumber,” from Joshua Tree’s RedBlueBlackSilver, along with these mysterious sounds:
