A Season in Hell
Hell's Kitchen Radio #402: Are You Kind?
To celebrate the 50th anniversary release of the seminal Grateful Dead LP, "Workingman's Dead", I'm taking the next two hours to play music that influenced the band as well as incredible covers of the album, version like you have never heard before.

If you tune in regularly you know as much as I love the Grateful Dead, I almost never play them. I'm not really certain why that is? I know they are an acquired taste, but a lot of the music I play on my show is. Maybe I just need to take on a separate show where all I play is live GD? There's always room for that, right? Hello? HELLO???

Anyway, the first hour is full of band influences, playing songs the Dead has covered over the years. The second hour are bands covering songs from "Workingman's Dead".

Enough said.
