Fetch the Dead Of The Day, from thousands of concerts made available
online by the Grateful Dead and their fans. The
DeadOfTheDay app provides a simple and elegant interface to listen to
music from the Internet Archive, which houses the most
extensive collection of live recordings ever assembled.
At the push of a button, the DeadOfTheDay app selects and streams a
song from a
concert played on the current date, week, or month from the
band's 30 years of touring. The simple media player interface displays
concert venue, date, and song title, and lets you navigate through
the concert - pause and restart playback, skip or repeat songs, go to
start or end of the concert. You can set concert search preferences
according to your taste - choose crystal-clear soundboard feeds or
rowdy, smoky 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
music ever recorded.

Note on bandwidth
The recordings in the Internet Archive are of high quality and thus use
a lot of bandwidth; the average bitrate is around 150 to 200 kilobits
per second, or about 1 to 1.5 Megabytes per minute. Thus a complete
concert can be between 200 and 300 Megabytes; if you have a limited
data plan, you'll want to monitor your data usage.
