Wednesday MidDay Medley Celebrates David Bowie
David Bowie’s death in New York City, on January 10, 2016 sent shock waves of grief across the world. Bowie made music for those of us who felt left out. Bowie taught us how to be ourselves, to celebrate being different. Bowie understood the theatre of rock and roll. Bowie was a gateway for his fans to other important discoveries like: The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, John Cale, Andy Warhol and The Factory, Iggy Pop, Glam Rock, New Wave, Electronica, Brian Eno, Roxy Music, William S. Burroughs, Beat Poetry, Mick Ronson, Luther Vandross, Tony Visconti, Carlos Alomar, Robert Fripp, T-Rex, Kraftwerk, Klaus Nomi, Bauhaus, Gender Expression, Independent film, Arcade Fire, TV on The Radio, and so much more.
Wednesday MidDay Medley presents our first in a series of tributes to David Bowie, featuring short stories about David Bowie from nine of his biggest fans: Michelle Bacon, Barry Lee, Ben Grimes, Cody Wyoming, Krystle Warren, Jesse Bartmess, Marion Merritt, Ian Michael Flanagan Johnson, and Nico Gray.
We’ll feature selected songs from, and representing, some of David Bowie’s 27 studio albums, and recordings David Bowie wrote and produced for other artists, including: Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople, and Mick Ronson, and Bowie songs performed by: Joan As Police Woman, Soft Reeds, Col.
