Sunday marks 25 years from the death of the Grateful Dead's leader, Jerry Garcia. But his music lives on as his songs resonate with new generations of Deadheads.

Colorado Public Radio's Vic Vela looks at his legacy and remembers Garcia with Grateful Dead founding member Bob Weir.

Bob Weir has put his touring plans on hold during COVID-19. Now he's collecting unsold concert t-shirts to make into masks for underserved communities. Check out his work with Music4Masks.

This segment aired on August 7, 2020.
