Hey Listeners,

Approximately 10 years ago I did a show and played the originals of songs the Grateful Dead have covered. It was inspired by a compilation of songs the Dead covered called The Music Never Stopped. That single CD could not do the catalogue of songs the Dead have covered justice and a 2-hour show barely scratched the surface.

The Dead have covered so many songs across all genres of American music (on reason I think they are a contender for America’s greatest band) – it’s astounding and impressive. And it’s going to be fun to hear a cross section of that catalogue on tonight’s show.
