Starman Songs: A Tribute to David Bowie


Mixed by DJ Playaduster and DJ Fundi / January 2016

We attempted to honor the life, music and creative legacy of David Bowie after his sudden departure from Planet Earth. We collaborated on this mix that features Bowie's songs (in somewhat chronological order), interviews, news reels, a few choice covers and a handful of remixes. When choosing tracks, we had studio cuts, live versions, remixes and sometimes Bowie's reinterpretations of them re-recorded 20+ years later ~ we often blend several sources in to one track, so listen carefully! So much gratitude for this magical human being and all that he left behind.

Travel well, Spaceman. We'll miss you.

track list :: Ziggy Stardust / Starman (original studio mix + live at the BBC 1972) / Rebel Rebel / All The Young Dudes / The Man Who Sold the World (studio + live at the BBC 2000) / Changes / Rock n Roll Suicide / Jean Genie / Fame (live at the BBC 2000 + studio + Luke Mandala remix) / Young Americans (2007 mix) / Modern Love / Under Pressure (acapella with Freddy Mercury) / Golden Years (single version + Jeremy Sole remix) / Ashes to Ashes / China Girl / I'm Afraid of Americans / Never Let Me Down (Britt Daniels cover) / Heroes / David Bowie retrospective / Lazarus / I Can't Give Everything Away / Life On Mars? / Suffragette City (Seu Jorge) / Space Oddity (Choir! Choir! Choir! ) / ...outro :: \\

Tom Robbins reading at Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham, 2009

Author Tom Robbins reads from "B is for Beer" — his "children's book abut beer" — appropriately at Boundary Bay Brewery in Bellingham, Washington on May 5, 2009. I get to interview Robbins and field audience questions at minute 15 — a peak life experience for sure! Thanks to Scott Glackman for shooting this video -- just discovered it after 5 years!
