To mark what would have been David Bowie‘s 75th birthday, Saturday, January 8, CKUA’s Hidden Track podcast presents David Bowie | Starman.
As the world celebrates David Robert Haywood Jones’ 75th, and marks the 6th anniversary of his passing, the musical legacy and cultural impact of David Bowie just continues to grow. And here in 2022, he’s somehow still making his presence freshly felt in our world, in the form of new work.
We’ll explore his groundbreaking career and amazingly enduring influence with pre-eminent Bowie biographer Dylan Jones. We’ll also hear from Mark Plati, Bowie’s co-producer and musical director on the fabled “lost” album Toy, which is just finally seeing the light of day this month.
We’ll also visit with a pair of musical collaborators of Bowie’s, well-loved Canadian artists Emm Gryner and Owen Pallett. And to bring it all into the here and now, Alberta Ballet’s Jean Grand-Maitre will tell us about Phi, the bold new ballet they’re creating in collaboration with the David Bowie estate, slated for a March 2022 premiere.
The Hidden Track podcast is presented by Bent Stick Brewing‘s Hidden Track Citra Lager.
