Lou Reed's New York Shuffle runs the gamut from jazz to contemporary indie to vintage rock, and everything in-between.
Originally broadcast from Lou's home town, the world renowned, avant-garde innovator co-hosts the show with music producer Hal Willner, who recently collaborated with Lou on the concert film 'Berlin'.
Lou has always wanted to emulate the American FM radio of his youth, where as he describes it, he found "DJs who did their own programming and set the bar high. I learned from those DJs and it's a delight, with my friend Hal, to do this type of radio today".
Hal Willner is one of the most well-regarded experimental producers in music today, working with Marianne Faithfull, Bill Frisell, Gavin Friday, Lucinda Williams, Laurie Anderson, William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, among others.
In the first episode Lou and Hal's wit and wisdom is blended with and extraordinary music from Feist, The Antlers, James Blake, The Shangri-La's, NRBQ and Albert Ayler.
