Lou Reed: Dance to My Rock ‘n’ Roll Station!

loureed Lou Reed: Dance to My Rock n Roll Station!It’s been a good month for Lou Reed. Just weeks after it was made public that the 66-year-old indie icon wed his longtime girlfriend, Laurie Anderson, Sirius Satellite Radio announced that Lou Reed will host a weekly show on Sirius’ Disorder channel, joining other hosts for the radio network like Marky Ramone, David Johansen (a.k.a. Buster Poindexter) of the New York Dolls, Martha Stewart, Eminem and Tony Hawk.

Lou Reed’s New York World, as the show is titled, will be co-hosted with Hal Wilner, musical director on Mr. Reed’s 1973 Berlin concert, following the release of the album of the same name. In a statment, Mr. Reed said:

"For years, I’ve always been a fan of eclectic radio, such as FM radio in the past when you could hear stations play widely divergent music, ranging from rock to country to jazz to opera. We will try to bring Sirius’ listeners audio from all parts of the world that covers the whole musical spectrum."

The show will premiere on Saturday at 7 p.m. E.S.T.
