I WUZZ FEELING VERY BLUE…
Podcasts 13 & 14 feature responses from myself and others to Bowie’s death on January 10th 2016. I thought seeing as absolutely no one seems to have paid tribute to Bowie or talked about how much he affected their lives, I should give it a go as I’m such a trailblazer. A warning: it gets emotional in there so if a middle aged man getting teary about a pop star is going to ruin your day, maybe try The Moral Maze instead.
The two podcasts feature contributions from BaaadDad (talking in 1997 about the media response to the death of Princess Diana), Dara O’Kearney who wrote a wonderful blog post about his unusual relationship with Bowie, Kathy Burke who describes the bizarre Bowie based misunderstanding that unfolded on Celebrity Big Brother the week of his death, Johan Renck, who directed the videos for Blackstar and Lazarus, Jonathan Ross who talked to me about his own relationship with Bowie and his music and Gaz Coombes who recorded a cover of a classic Bowie track in his home studio, especially for this podcast.
