Happy Birthday David Bowie

Another solo affair, with Chris unavailable and Erik still pissing about pretending it is Christmas. Today is of course David Bowie's 65th birthday so it gave me an excuse to play some of the Dame's songs. Although I played a few of the more popular songs, I also broadcast a couple of less obvious compositions. I also played 'The Laughing Gnome'. Somebody had to!
