As part of SiriusXM’s The Days Between programming, Dead & Company guitarist John Mayer will take to the airwaves as a guest DJ on Aug. 1 “hand picking his nine favorite, live Grateful Dead tracks and giving exclusive commentary. Listeners will hear songs including ‘China Cat Sunflower’ and ‘Jack Straw,’ as well as the specific version of the song ‘Althea’ that turned Mayer on to the Grateful Dead and inspired him to play their songs on his guitar.”
