Great deals on musical instruments
Electric guitars player Lou Reed has teamed up with 6 Music, the BBC radio station.

He's going to be co-presenting a programme alongside Hal Willner starting later this month, reports the BBC.

"Playing new and older music with the knowledgeable compendium of Hal Willner is a great pleasure," the guitarist has said.

Reed also suggested that music "from hip-hop through to Albert Ayler through to Clara Rockmore" would be being played.

He has released singles such as Walk On The Wild Side in his time while, as a member of The Velvet Underground, he was part of the band behind the likes of Femme Fatale, I Heard Her Call My Name and I'm Sticking With You.

6 Music's head of programmes, James Stirling, has spoken of his "delight" about Reed's programme being broadcast on the station.

The musician has been an inspiration to a lot of the music stars that his station's listeners love, Mr Stirling suggested.
