KIOS airs Lou's Legacy: A Lou Reed Appreciation Sunday night at 7:00pm.
Rock icon Lou Reed died earlier this week at age 71. His work as a member of the Velvet Underground and his years as a solo artist inspired generations of fans and musicians alike. To honor Reed, KIOS will air the two-hour special Lou's Legacy: A Lou Reed Appreciation Sunday night at 7:00 .
A panel of music writers and Lou Reed fans will sample the late musician's catalog through the years and suggest what made him important to the history of rock music. Songs from both his days with the Velvet Underground and his solo career are highlighted.
The program is hosted by award-winning producer Paul Ingles and includes Anthony DeCurtis and Will Hermes of Rolling Stone Magazine, Richie Unterberger, author of White Light / White Heat: The Velvet Underground Day by Day, and Ann Powers of NPR Music.
