Last Chill Room of the year is the lightning flash and thunder roar of White Light/White Heat, the Velvet Underground's most extreme statement that hasn't dated a second and burns fresher than ever. A deep appreciation.
Produced and engineered by dj bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This program uses tracks from the new Super Deluxe Edition of White Light/White Heat, also from the Live at the Gymnasium bootleg 2008, online Velvet resources, and the Peel Slowly and See box set. It is presented for education and entertainment and because it's fantastic. Thanks to my live listeners and friends and commenters. The next Velvets show will be on the grey album. Feedback requested. We miss you, Lou.
