PRESS RELEASE

SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO

*************************
Rock pioneer Lou Reed joins SIRIUS Satellite Radio

SIRIUS welcomes the legendary singer-songwriter to its line-up of iconic recording artists and hosts

NEW YORK, May 15, 2008 - SIRIUS Satellite Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI) announced that Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Lou Reed will host his own weekly show exclusively on SIRIUS.

Lou Reed's New York Shuffle will premiere on SIRIUS Disorder channel 70 this Saturday, May 17th at 6 p.m. ET.

SIRIUS listeners can expect to hear the most eclectic mix of music found anywhere on Lou Reed's New York Shuffle -- running the gamut from jazz to vintage rock, and everything in-between.

Reed will co-host the show with music producer Hal Willner, who recently collaborated with Reed on the concert film Berlin.

Lou Reed said, "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. 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. We will try to bring SIRIUS' listeners audio from all parts of the world that covers the whole musical spectrum."

"For four decades, Lou Reed has been at the forefront of music innovation," said Scott Greenstein, President of Entertainment and Sports for SIRIUS. "We are proud to have a singular talent like Lou join us, and to have SIRIUS continue to grow as a home for creative freedom on the radio."

Reed joins fellow rockers and recording artists such as David Johansen, "Little Steven" Van Zandt, Mojo Nixon, Steve Earle, Marky Ramone and Fred Schneider, whose shows on SIRIUS represent both another aspect of their artistic expression and some of the most diverse and creative radio being broadcast today.

In the 1960s, Lou Reed led the Velvet Underground as the antidote to the counterculture hippies of the time.

Produced by Andy Warhol, they became a band with an avante-garde vision beyond the realms of popular music.

In addition to Reed's success as part of the Velvet Underground, he scored a major solo hit with his gritty urban anthem Walk on the Wild Side and has released over 20 solo albums since 1972.

Lou Reed's talents were recognized in 1996 when the Velvet Underground was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

In 2006, he played a series of now legendary shows at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn, on a stage designed by the painter Julian Schnabel.

Reed's performance was recorded live and released as a film by Schnabel in 2008.

Lou Reed most recently collaborated with The Killers on the alternative rock hit, Tranquilize.

Hal Willner is one of the most well-regarded experimental producers in music today, tapping into a wide-ranging field of music genres that includes rock and jazz, pop and experimental.

In addition to Lou Reed, Willner has produced albums for Marianne Faithfull, Bill Frisell, Gavin Friday, Lucinda Williams, Laurie Anderson, William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, among others.

Lou Reed's New York Shuffle will air on SIRIUS Disorder, Saturdays at 6 p.m. and rebroadcast Sundays at 12 noon and Mondays at 4 p.m. (all times Eastern).

SIRIUS Disorder is where free-form radio lives-eclectic music without rules or boundaries-from rock to reggae, blues to folk or opera or a jug band thrown in. On SIRIUS Disorder, listeners will hear Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, White Stripes, James Brown, Ryan Adams, Richard Thompson, Patti Smith, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Beck, Tom Waits, Madness, Wilco, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello and many, many others.

Finally had the chance to listen to it last night.
Musically the show was great, great stuff by band like 'No change', 'F U C K buttons' or 'Mogwai' that I'd never heard of.

As for the two legendary hosts - I think Hall's as much worthy of that title as is Lou - that's really just a gimmick.
Songs often followed each other in succesion for over 15 minutes (3-4 songs in a row).
I doubt that Lou and Hall spoke for even 5 minutes of the entire 2 hour show and all they said was nonesense.
Mostly came down to: 'Ooh Hall, isn't that just amazing?'
And Hall saying: "Yes Lou it is. Hi, this is Hall Willner & Lou Reed with New York Shuffle. Here's another bunch of songs'.

They could have had Lou say:
"Hi, this is Lou Reed. These are songs I like. Enjoy.' at the start of the show. Would have had the same effect.

But the set was superb!

just a rumor.

BUT HE'S MAGNIFIQUE! maybe Lou will develop as a DJ--

Bob didn't invent hosting a radio-show you know.

And Lou's hardly copying him - the musical cuts couldn't be more different.
Bob's show mostly sounds as if you're picking up on a signal of the 40's or 50's with lots of great music from that era.
Lou's radio shows features noise-bands, underground DJ's, some progressive Heavy Metal, current R&B, ...

Bob's really hosting a show, with his talking taking up more or less half of the show.
Lou and Hal only chat briefly in between long chuncks of music.
No mails, no tunes, no callers on line 2, no zip.

I love to be able listen to both.

I agree with Andy that Reed is doing his own thing, but it's interesting to see how his and Dylan's tastes coincide. "Black Jack David," "Big Mamou," and "Baby Scratch My Back" could have come off a TTRH playlist.

I must be missing something, unless the torrents have been taken down. I can neither find them in the 122 torrents I see, nor a user going by the handle of "Changelling." There's a "Changeling," but according to the site stats, s/he has never uplioaded a torrent. Could you give a direct URL?

Yes you are right Fred, I got in touch with changeling and they told me they had to be taken down for copyright reasons, but also said that they hope to put them up for downloading somewhere else shortly and will let me know...if and when I hear anything I will get back to you

If in the meantime you (or anybody else) sees them somewhere else don't keep it to yourselves and let us know

:) :)

I first should say that I like the music Reed and Wilner are playing (a lot) - thanks again, Changeling - but having said that, listening to New York Shuffle makes me recognize how lucky we are to have Theme Time Radio Hour and the tremendous amount of work Dylan & Co. are putting into their own show.

We could have very easily gotten something like New York Shuffle, which is essentially lots of music and mostly inarticulate commentary from Lou and Hal, ""it's raining outside," all the music we're playing sounds the same..." It's like a couple of guys gassing in a dorm room and swapping playlists. Very good playlists, but playlists nonetheless.

When TTRH was still yet a gleam in Lee Abrams eye and I wondered what a Bob Dylan show was going to be like, I imagined something closer to New York Shuffle, a mumbling Dylan making perfunctory statements, lots of music and little talk, maybe occasionally Dylan hooking up with someone like Tom Petty and them exchanging banter.

Instead we got like this entire alternate Universe where a young Bob Dylan arrived in NYC in search of his hero Cousin Brucie, served a long apprenticeship with Long John Nebel, scuffed around various radio stations honing his craft, and eventually became the legendary host of Theme Time Radio Hour, broadcasting from high atop the Abernathy Building.
