David Gans hosts the Grateful Dead Hour each week.
The Grateful Dead Hour is on the air every week on WEXT. Hosted by David Gans, The Grateful Dead Hour features music from this legendary band's albums and live tapes, and explores the influences that artists like John Coltrane and Merle Haggard have had on the Dead's music. It is the only authorized radio show about the group, which gives Gans access to the band's private performance tapes. This hard-to-find material makes the show very popular with Deadheads across the country. The show remains fresh due to the almost inexhaustible collection of concert tapes, spanning over 25 years, as well as Deadheads' desire to hear every possible version of their favorite songs.
