The Aaron and Bryce Dessner-curated Grateful Dead tribute, Day of the Dead, came out on May 20, and we took an even deeper dive into the 59-song project on the radio

In this two-part special, host Carmel Holt discussed this labor of love with Aaron Dessner and Scott Devendorf of The National (also an FUV Essentials artist), so some first spins of the songs, the stories behind them, and a lot of love for (and "geeking out" about) the Grateful Dead are all on tap.

Thank you to The National, 4AD/Beggars and The Cutting Room Studios.
