In your Lou Reed segment, you described his Transformer record as being produced by David Bowie. I had heard this work attributed to Bowie alone again and again since Lou's death. Transformer was co-produced by Bowie and the Spiders From Mars guitarist Mick Ronson. Ronson was an incredibly gifted producer and arranger, without whom Bowie would not have become Bowie. To omit his contribution to Transformer is almost criminal. He deserves better than that.
