Spool’s Out Radio #68: Valley of the Sun

Hypnotist? Mystic? Conman? Whatever you think of him, Dick Sutphen founded new age publishing house Valley of the Sun in mid 70s America, and went on to release dozens of tapes of blissful music to an extensive mailing list of subscribers. On today’s show we host a secular blend of music from the Valley of the Sun‘s sprawling catalogue of synths, winds, third eye vibes, and astral projections.

Note: for the full story, read Britt Brown’s incredible telling of the Valley of the Sun story in The Wire Magazine 389
