Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.
April 29, 2015: CHRIS O'LEARY, author of Rebel Rebel, live in studio!
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
In 2009 Chris O'Leary started a blog discussing every David Bowie song, in chronological order. The first post was about Bowie's first single: "Liza Jane," by Davie Jones and the King Bees, which was released in June of 1964. That's also the starting point for Rebel Rebel, O'Leary's new book that is essentially a full-length revision of the blog entries covering the period from that 1964 debut through the release of Station To Station. In addition to singles and album tracks the book includes live performances, session outtakes and unreleased demos -- who recorded them, who played on and produced them, and when they were played live or broadcast on TV or radio. O'Leary joins Evan "Funk" Davies in the WFMU studios tonight to listen to and discuss some of the more obscure songs discussed in the book - and a few of the songs we all know and love as well. This show is a must for David Bowie fans!
