On tonight’s special edition of Rock It Properly, we salute ‘Rock & Roll’ legend Lou Reed with a 2-hour ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ to New York City to hear: the beginnings of Lou’s musical career with the short-lived, avant-garde rock band, The Velvet Underground, His Musical Collaborations, Solo Work, Friends and Lovers, Cover Songs, an Andy Warhol Pop Music Set, and Bands from NYC.

It’s going to be a ‘Perfect Day’ and Lou would’ve been glad to spend it with YOU!

Featuring: Cowboy Junkies, David Bowie, Laurie Anderson, Nico, John Cale, The Velvet Underground, Mick Ronson, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop and more.

“Rock It Properly” airs on Sundays in the Fall from 8-10pm.
