Chart positions

This show was 7th in the global classic rock chart and 88th in the global jazz chart.

Broadcast on 1 Brighton FM on Thursday, January 14, 2016. A tribute to David Bowie.

Bowie’s career is remarkable by any standards. His musical legacy spans more than 50 years. The list of awards he received, let alone those accolades he turned down, would run to pages. He was a true polymath: singer, producer, musician, actor, painter, instigator and innovator.

It’s nigh on impossible to listen to the 13 LPs he had released before 1980 without wondering how on earth they are the work of the same man. The modish sounds of his earliest recordings; the folk styles of his Beckenham Arts Lab days; those reinventions: Ziggy and the glam period Spiders and the grittier MC5/Velvet Underground sound that makes Aladdin Sane possibly the best LP of them all; the American soulboy sounds of Young Americans; the Berlin trilogy. This isn’t the work of a musical jackdaw (as the BBC referred to him in their excellent obituary) but the work of a genius. His influence cannot be overstated.

Sorry for the random artist titles... it wouldn't allow me to list Bowie's name repeatedly.
