Summer Special Series: Desert Air, a Hot and Dry Summer Special from the independent producer collective HearingVoices.com.

Hosted by Ben Adair (Weekend America). Stories: The basins near Nevada’s "Battle Mountain" are beautiful, lonely, dreary, and full of sagebrush, solace and stories, by Scott Carrier. Host Ben Adair heads down to the ghost towns, Opera Houses, century-old abandoned mines, and billion-year old boulders along Death Valley’s "Mojave Road." The band Faust dials in "Long Distance Calls in the Desert." Coyotes, owls, frogs and songbirds are part of Bernie Krause’s "Desert Solitudes". And the Quiet American records warning signs outside a Nevada Test Site rattling in the wind under the "Desert Sun."
