Mayor Peck?
  Swag For Life Member 4:40pm Walt:

@dale, I'd love to hear something from Newley as well, I think you can really hear his influence on Bowie's voice all through his career, not just the beginning. Newley seems to be reviled in a lot of online comments, and he had his ups and downs, but he had a pretty damn fascinating career.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Andrew Waterloo:

Celine Dion's husband died, and Kim Mitchell had a heart attack according to our news up north.

The great thing about that quote is it's been attributed to a bunch of different people.

Mott: on a passing comet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:02pm Rich in Washington:

He found him hanging around NYC nightclubs.
  5:02pm The Disco King:

Though WP sez: "In the late 1970s while performing at Club 57, The Mudd Club, The Pyramid Club, and other venues, Nomi assembled a group of up-and-coming models, singers, artists, and musicians to perform live with him, which at times included Joey Arias, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, John Sex and Kenny Scharf.[7] He also appeared on Manhattan Cable's TV Party. David Bowie heard about Nomi's performances in New York and soon met him and Joey Arias at the Mudd Club. Bowie hired them as performers and backup singers for his appearance on Saturday Night Live which aired on December 15, 1979."

Fabio's show today is a perfect example of why I dared not do a realBowie tribute yesterday. I stuck to fake Bowies because I am merely a Bowie dilettante.
  5:32pm Unclear on the concept:

I gotta get my ears checked. I couldn't make out a word of those lyrics.
  5:33pm ScottC:

My wife is not to familiar with Bowie's body of work so I dis ringed him as curious, generous and very human. Think about the story of Major Tom - it is nothing short of epic and describes an environment of total aloneness.

As testaments to both Bowie and WFMU, of all of the Bowie shows that have aired this week, they've all been rather unique and wonderful. Even Spider From Mars and long-time Bowie band member, Mike Garson called in and chatted with Dave Hill for 20-30 minutes.

@Cecile: haha... It could work!! In fact, the portion of Fabio's show where Clay barges in could be called that.

Found a second one: Cathleen Calbert's "Hypothetical Question." Fifth stanza:

liquescent, and a little nauseating,
like having sex with David Bowie

Not to disrespect any of the other tributes I've heard in the past few days but the Strength Through Failure tribute may have been the most moving.

@VP: Read today that Bowie called Visconti shortly before his death to report ongoing work on a new record. No idea whether he'd begun to record anything.

@ Dean: he had completed 5 demos and expected to last long enuff to make another record, sadly. Read that Visconti thing yesterday

RuPaul said that when he saw Bowie on Soul Train, he wrote Bowie all over his notebooks and other things for a year.
