Re: VU Photo Thread

That is Harvey Cowan, producer of Wilson's "promotainment"* radio series The Music Factor y. This staged set of photos seems to suggest that Nico was an on-air guest at one point, but only an ad for her Chelsea Girls album was ever aired (although it was aired many times). *In the guise of...
