After three years and 100 episodes, Bob Dylan's Sirius XM program Theme Time Radio Hour may be leaving the airwaves. "I stopped doing those shows a while ago, and then XM Radio was combined with another one," Dylan tells Rolling Stone. "They want to renew. They'd like more shows. But I'm not so sure." On April 15th, Dylan aired the final episode of the third season with the theme of "goodbye," concluding with Woody Guthrie's "So Long, It's Been Good to Know Yuh." Sirius XM declined to comment about the show.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
