    Lou Reed will launch his very own SIRIUS satellite radio show tomorrow, May 17, at 6 p.m. Dubbed "Lou Reed's New York Shuffle," the early evening block will be co-hosted by Hal Willner. The producer recently worked with Reed on his concert film version of Berlin.

    "For years, I've always been a fan of eclectic radio, such as FM radio in the past when you could hear stations play widely divergent music, ranging from rock to country to jazz to opera," Reed said in a statement. "I loved the days when DJs who did their own programming set the bar high. I learned from these DJs and it's a delight, with my friend Hal Willner, to do this type of radio today on SIRIUS."
