Punk rocker (World War IX), The Daily Show producer and cartoonist Justin Melkmann joins me to discuss NYC legend Lou Reed and his 1975 album ‘Coney Island Baby’.
We talk about how the album is one of Reed’s most sincere works, why Justin passed up the chance to meet Reed, the musical link from Reed to punk, the Lou Reed - Brady Bunch connection, and how drawing a cartoon of Lou changed Justin’s life.
