Hi, coelacanth. Hi, Mark R. Hi, everyone else. These songs from Blackstar sound pretty good, I think.

Some of those lyrics--"I'm in heaven"--God.
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 3:25am (Eyepatch) Fox:

From what I've heard, it reminds me of Outside, which is probably my favorite Bowie album (not a popular stance, I realise)
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 3:26am (Eyepatch) Fox:

The reports are that he was fighting cancer for the past 18 months. So I suppose the notion that this was going to be his last album may have been in the forefront of his mind throughout the making of this album.

The 1980 Floor Show!

Sorry for the sketchy sound quality on this Cavett appearance, but I think the content makes up for it--I hope you agree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 3:38am pacific standard simon:

Frankly, I thought he was full of shit most of the time he was around, but I was glad that he was around anyway. He was worth having around.

Thx WFMU - I'm glad I heard it here.

I had a cut-out copy of The Man Who Sold The World, and Pin Ups, but I don't remember what order I bought them in.

Thank you Mark R and Therese for breaking it to me softly. Glad I didn't have to wake up (on the west coast) to the print headlines.

this was my first Bowie album; but i didn't buy it.
"panic in detroit" inspired me to start writing.

I will say that I loved Pin Ups the best, because the songwriting was the most consistently best.

"Queen Bitch" is the equal of any song that Lou Reed ever wrote or sang.

Aladdin Sane is my fav Bowie LP, and I mean LP! The first RCA cd re-issue of it had the worst audio quality. I always recall that disc as one (of many) that made me realize that records were much better than CD's!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 4:25am pacific standard simon:

I'm envisioning Mark R. rampaging through the record library while Therese looked on, shocked, yet understanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 4:28am pacific standard simon:

I loved the American version of the TV series Life On Mars, largely because of its faithfulness to the music of that era.

@PSS: Therese was also doing some quick programming, since her last hour was all Bowie.
  Mon. 1/11/16 4:30am Mark R.:

Actually Therese already had all the Bowie albums in the studio, so I just said, "Leave 'em!"

@joeray - I tuned in near the end.

As a gay man who was a teen in the early 80s, I feared being called that 3-letter f-word
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 4:36am pacific standard simon:

Hunky Dory is pretty much my favorite Bowie album. I didn't worry much about the F word, because they called me (and everybody else THEY didn't like) that before the glam thing hit anyway.
  Mon. 1/11/16 4:38am @lollydeskpotato:

Such fantastic choices, thank you, thank you for this lovely show. Saw Bowie @ BostonGarden my first concert age 12 he saved me fr Jr. hi gloom

This album was HATED by the rock critic establishment when it was released. Assholes.

oh yea! I'm from Detroit and i remember hearing "panic in detroit" on wabx all the time! Thanks for the flashback!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 4:39am Parq:

Mrs. Parq couldn't sleep, and when she came to bed, she told me the news. Now I can't sleep. Impossible to synthesize all that's on my mind into a few choice words. So glad to be able to count on FMU to be playing just what I want to hear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 4:39am coelacanth:

i was called a girl a lot and a sissy from 3rd grade on,after my parents let me grow my hair long. i was the only boy my age in my town with long hair. my friends' older sisters liked me. my friends' parents usually hated me!
  Mon. 1/11/16 4:42am greysquad:

thanks for playing "pin-ups" too... one of his best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 4:46am joeray:

I'm probably close to your age, Mark R. but my experience was different. in the mid-seventies. I was in a band with my cousin- a guitarist who was so steeped in Bowie and the "glam" scene that I had to join in with eye make up and snarled pigtailed hair - a style I got from Zappa on the cover of "We're Only in it for the Money"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 4:46am pacific standard simon:

This album introduced me to some awesome 60s songs that I was too young to catch the first time around. When I was old enough to round up the originals, I found that many of the covers stood up very well against their parents.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 4:47am brendanswfmuaccount:

I listened to Station to Station tonight while doing some work before bed. Turned on FMU as Therese was playing a track fro Low and the new record. I woke up to hear Mark announce Bowie's death on his first mic break. Haven't been able to sleep since. RIP :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 4:51am pacific standard simon:

Try to imagine Elvis Costello's bonus tracks without Pin-Ups.

Thank you so much WFMU...for sharing Bowie love with us all.

  Mon. 1/11/16 4:57am V Priceless:

I was at the Woodmansey gig in NYC Friday..,Visconti held up his cell phone to the audience and we all sang happy birthday to him! No words...thanks for this show.

I really hated that "Ashes To Ashes" song, but "Putting Out The Fire With Gasoline" was OK.

Jebus just don't play the bonus tracks from the Pin-Ups CD! Those things are awful!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 5:05am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I was a little brother - my Big Brother nine years older than me - & into Rawk & Glam even in smalltown NewHampshire. So - more often than not - the music would come half-clear from the other room - thru walls & under doors. Things like Bowie in the early 1970s & my pre-teenage years, then, were powerful & mysterious indeed. Then came self-made cassettes (later taping everybody's albums they had: Bowie was an Artist whose oeuvre was large & diverse & impactful enuff, it was worth long pursuit) & eventually LPs - then occasional films & finally CDs. He was always there. Just read a tribute someone said Thx for being an Artist til the end. Damn.
  Mon. 1/11/16 5:06am greysquad:

I love that version of "shapes of things" with the heavy Anthony Newley vocal stylizations....
  Mon. 1/11/16 5:08am :-(:

I'll never forgive my mother for forbidding me from seeing Bowie during his 1974 Diamond Dogs tour (well, I forgive her, but you know what I mean). I'd loved his music since 1972, and had read about him in Creem, so I was dying to see him live. A few of my jr. high girlfriends had an extra ticket and invited me. Alas, it was not to be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 5:11am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...videos before 'videos' & of course the visual & theatrical expression: he was an Auteur who seemed to have another level or dimension (or @ least - or even better - suggest them) than other Rawkers...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 5:11am coelacanth:

it's probably my least favorite album until Lodger...still like it and glad to hear it. it's been a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 5:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

A brilliant arranger - one of the great bandleaders, yup
It wasn't until the 90s til we'd be glutted by Tribute albums as a standard Genre...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 5:14am coelacanth:

Bowie never hesitated to say that it was all marketing. he wasn't pretending it was real, he was just playing and experimenting. i always respected him for that- even during those phases when i hated his image.
  Mon. 1/11/16 5:15am :-(:

Yeah, his touring schedule was insane, so that's a good thought that he chose to do covers instead of writing more songs. But Pin Ups was so creative for the time....it sort of presaged John Lennon's Rock n Roll LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 5:16am pacific standard simon:

On "Drive In Saturday". he mentions "Twig the wonderkid" -- Twiggy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/11/16 5:16am coelacanth:

he said in an interview once,something like" it's just a game,right? i mean, if you didn't laugh you'd fucking cry."
  Mon. 1/11/16 5:19am greysquad:

oh man... you are really hitting the sweet spots in his career.... this really was his last great album!
Avatar Mon. 1/11/16 5:20am Nasty Les:

I'm very glad WFMU and the listener community exists right now, as it feels like exactly the right way to mourn the passing of a great, and celebrate his music. Can't really face "Social Media" right now with an endless stream of identical "RIP David Bowie" status updates... Thanks Mark R!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/11/16 5:20am pacific standard simon:

Pin-Ups invented the whole genre of rock inspirational cover albums which has been mined like the mother lode ever since.

Station to Station was just amazing. It introduced me to Professor Longhair (via TVC15) long before I might have otherwise been introduced.
