Lou Reed to appear on 6 Music
Posted on 3 Oct 2012 16:50 to category : Band / Celebrity News
He's going to be co-presenting a programme alongside Hal Willner starting later this month, reports the BBC.
"Playing new and older music with the knowledgeable compendium of Hal Willner is a great pleasure," the guitarist has said.
Reed also suggested that music "from hip-hop through to Albert Ayler through to Clara Rockmore" would be being played.
He has released singles such as Walk On The Wild Side in his time while, as a member of The Velvet Underground, he was part of the band behind the likes of Femme Fatale, I Heard Her Call My Name and I'm Sticking With You.
6 Music's head of programmes, James Stirling, has spoken of his "delight" about Reed's programme being broadcast on the station.
The musician has been an inspiration to a lot of the music stars that his station's listeners love, Mr Stirling suggested.
