This week on My KUTX, we take some time to remember American legend Lou Reed. He was the guitarist, vocalist, and principal songwriter of the Velvet Underground, and his solo career spanned several decades. Reed passed away on October 27 this year.
In honor of Lou Reed, we enlisted Alejandro Escovedo, a legend in his own right, to curate an hour of some of his favorite Lou Reed and Velvet Underground songs. Escovedo counts the late musician as his biggest creative influence.
