Polyvinyl Craftsmen Lou Reed Special

We thought that with the news of Lou Reed shuffling off this mortal coil on Sunday we'd dedicate this week's show to him. So what we've got is a mixture of Velvet Underground and solo stuff and some covers and a few bands who have been influenced by his work.

So much of what we regularly play on the show may not have sounded like it does had it not been for what Lou and the Velvet Underground put out. 

We hope you enjoy what we've put together, here's the download.
