That is Harvey Cowan, producer of Wilson's "promotainment"* radio series The Music Factory. 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 a "free-form" FM radio show, it was actually an extended ad for MGM/Verve Records, distributed free to any station willing to play it.

Irwin Chusid is in the midst of replaying the Music Factory episodes on his WFMU show, in full and in sequence from #1. See http://wfmu.org/playlists/IC for info and links to archived versions of those programs.

Caption of Music Factory photos, per Getty Images website:

NEW YORK: Record executive and producer Harvey Cowan and record producer and D.J. Tom Wilson are joined by singer Nico (aka Christa Paffgen) -- who is promoting her album Chelsea Girl which Wilson produced -- in the studio recording their radio show The Music Factory at ABC studios on June 21, 1967 in New York, New York. (Photo by PoPsie Randolph/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)

The mystery woman in the second photo is Phyllis Smith (aka Phyllis Altenhaus), Wilson's secretary and frequent companion. She was also an actress and film editor, and is featured prominently in Zappa's Uncle Meat film.
