Tape Archive: Bowie Interview Feb 1979 Part 1

This is part one of an interview between Nicky Horne and David Bowie from February 13th 1979. Listening to the London phone callers still amuses me. The sound of the old telephone exchanges clicking away with crossed lines together with the surprisingly high quality of the caller subjectBowie79radio matter (One caller floors Bowie by asking his opinion of Stanislavsky) though another chides him with a swift ‘Shut up’ after Bowie is playfully cheeky to her.

Anyway sorting some of these rarities out has taken a lot longer than I had anticipated and I’ll be breaking many of these longer recordings down into sensible chunks such as this first 20 minute section.
