David Bowie: Vintage Key of Life

Duration:
3 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 30 March 2013

Mary Anne Hobbs starts the Bowie Weekend by revisiting the time she met David in 1997.

In this 15 year old interview you will hear the Thin White Duke tell tales of Andy Warhol, Marc Bolan, Mick Jagger, Lou Reed, Brian Eno, the inspiration for Ziggy Stardust, and his enduring love of dance music.

David Bowie has a retrospective exhibition at the V&A, and coincidentally, our Assistant Producer Jack Howson, has previously created Patron Saints for visitors to the V&A.

We believe that Bowie is very much a Saint who walks among us mortals, so Jack will be creating a bespoke Patron Saint for David Bowie on the Weekend Breakfast show from listeners' suggestions of what makes Bowie such an icon. Show producer Kate Cocker will also illustrate for longevity...

Also, of course, revelatory new music and brilliant tracks from the archives, compiled lovingly by Mary Anne. This is the best way to wake up, bar none.
