SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO has added ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAMER LOU REED, who will host his own weekly show exclusively on SIRIUS. "LOU REED'S NEW YORK SHUFFLE" will premiere on SIRIUS Disorder channel 70 this SATURDAY, MAY 17th at 6p ET.
LOU 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. I loved the days when DJs who did their own programming set the bar high. I learned from these DJs and it's a delight, with my friend HAL WILLNER, to do this type of radio today on SIRIUS. We will try to bring SIRIUS' listeners audio from all parts of the world that covers the whole musical spectrum."
