Lenny Kaye sits in

Guitarist Lenny Kaye sits in for Iggy Pop with two hours of his favourite tracks.

Lenny Kaye, guitarist and compiler of the legendary Sixties Nuggets compilation sits in for Iggy Pop with two hours of his favourite tracks.

He's been a guitarist for poet-rocker Patti Smith since her band's inception more than forty years ago, and is the co-author of Waylon, the life story of Waylon Jennings.

Over the years he has worked in the studio with such artists as Suzanne Vega, Jim Carroll, Soul Asylum, Kristen Hersh, and Allen Ginsberg, as well as recording his own material.

His seminal anthology of sixties' garage-rock, Nuggets, has long been regarded as defining a genre.
