Live Ledge #131: RIP Lou Reed

The music world lost a giant last Sunday when Lou Reed passed away. In my life, he was one of the threads that connected the punk movement of the late 70's that I was so energetically following to the more traditional, historical giants that I was also discovering. His work with the Velvet Underground allowed me to see how rock and roll made it from Chuck Berry to the Talking Heads.
Tonight's show is dedicated to Lou, with tracks not only from his solo and Velvet Underground days but covers by the likes of The Feelies, Tommy Keene, Roky Erickson, and Mott the Hoople. Grab this one from the usual sources, or...
