Dead FM offers listeners psychedelic snapshots of music’s longest, strangest trip – the sounds of the Grateful Dead. By tracing the evolution of the Dead’s sound from primal, substance-fueled blues and atonal noise to bubbly, up-tempo dance music all along interspersed with jams ranging from mellow to maniacal, Dead FM listeners will gain a new appreciation for America’s greatest rock band of all time. Dead FM offers points of entry for the uninitiated listener and deep cuts for those seasoned Deadheads amongst us. By paying special attention to artists that influenced the Grateful Dead, as well as the music that resulted from the Golden Road that the Dead paved, Dead FM gives listeners no other option but to smile, smile, smile.
