Fetch the Dead Of The Day, from thousands of concerts made available on the Internet Archive by the Grateful Dead and their fans. The Dead Of The Day app provides a simple interface to stream music from the most extensive collection of live recordings ever assembled.

At the push of a button, the app selects and streams a song from a concert played on the current date, week, or month from among the band's 30 years of touring. The simple media player interface displays the concert venue, date, and song title, and lets you navigate through the music - pause and restart playback, skip or repeat songs, go to the start or end of a concert. You can set concert search preferences according to your taste - choose crystal-clear soundboard feeds or rowdy audience recordings, select from your favorite years and decades, pick a random song or listen to an entire concert. And save your favorites for repeated enjoyment.

Whether you're a die-hard Deadhead or just discovering the Dead, you're sure to enjoy thousands of hours of the best live music ever recorded.
