Unheard David Bowie Pin Ups radio show to air on 6 Music

A previously unheard radio show recorded by David Bowie to promote his album Pin Ups is to be broadcast for the first time in 40 years.

The 15-minute mock radio show, made in 1973, will be aired on BBC Radio 6 Music on Wednesday.

The show features five tracks from Pin Ups, a covers album that features Bowie and Twiggy on the sleeve.

The recording was discovered by Nigel Reeve, who oversees Bowie's back catalogue.

He said it was a "jaw-dropping" moment when he played it for the first time.

The five songs in the show - The Pretty Things' Rosalyn, Them's Here Comes the Night, The Yardbirds' I Wish You Would, The Merseys' Sorrow and The Who's I Can't Explain - are interspersed with Bowie's own musings on the London music scene.

The show was produced by Bowie and Ken Scott, who worked with Bowie on his albums from Hunky Dory through to Pin Ups.

Reeve discovered the recording during research several years ago.

"It was in an old tape vault on 1/4" tape with simply the words 'Radio Show' written on it," he said. "This is such a rare find. No one knew of its existence, apart from David and Ken. To play it for the first time was quite simply a jaw-dropping moment."

Clips of the show will be broadcast across Wednesday on BBC 6 Music and will be available to listen to until midnight on Sunday 27 October.

Presenter Shaun Keaveny said: "It's beyond exciting for 6 Music to be showcasing the first-ever airing of this historic recording, in a year that has been all about the Bowie comeback."

David Bowie broke a 10-year silence in January, releasing a new single, Where Are We Now, completely out of the blue.

It was the first sign of his 24th studio album The Next Day, recorded in secret over two years with long-time producer Tony Visconti.

The album is nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, which will be announced on 30 October.

"As a network showcasing music of alternative spirit, David Bowie is at our core," said James Stirling, Editor, 6 Music. "It's fantastic that our listeners will have the opportunity to hear this radio show for the first time ever."

We recently told you about the The David Bowie Pin Ups Radio Show being made available on Spotify from October 28th.

Here’s the press release with a transcript of Bowie's fascinating between track chat.

BBC Radio 6 Music given world exclusive access to previously unheard David Bowie 'Radio Show'

Marking 40 years since the release of Pin Ups, David Bowie's album of cover versions, BBC Radio 6 Music has been given exclusive access to a previously unheard promotional radio programme for the album which will be broadcast on the network and at bbc.co.uk/6music on Wednesday 23 October.

The multi-talented, multi-faceted Bowie turns DJ in the 15 minute mock radio show. It was produced in 1973 as a promo tool for the release of the album, but never made it to the airwaves. It was produced by Bowie himself and Ken Scott (who produced Bowie's albums from Hunky Dory through to Pin Ups).

It features five tracks from the album (The Pretty Things' Rosalyn, Them's Here Comes the Night, The Yardbirds' I Wish You Would, The Merseys' Sorrow and The Who's I Can't Explain) interspersed with Bowie's own musings and insights into the London music scene back then.

It was unearthed by Nigel Reeve who oversees Bowie's back catalogue. He said, "I discovered it during some research several years ago. It was in an old tape vault on 1/4" tape with simply the words 'Radio Show' written on it. This is such a rare find. No one knew of its existence, apart from David and Ken. To play it for the first time was quite simply a jaw dropping moment."

Forty years on, on Wednesday 23 October it will be given its first ever broadcast in shows across the day on BBC Radio 6 Music. And will be available to listen to till midnight on Sunday 27 October at bbc.co.uk/6music. 6 Music's Breakfast Show presenter Shaun Keaveny will play the first part of the promo at 9.30am, followed by further clips through the day in Lauren Laverne, Radcliffe & Maconie and Steve Lamacq's shows, with the final part airing on Marc Riley's programme in the evening.

Presenter Shaun Keaveny said: "It's beyond exciting for 6 Music to be showcasing the first ever airing of this historic recording, in a year that has been all about the Bowie comeback."

James Stirling, Editor 6 Music, said: "This exclusive is a fantastic coup for 6 Music. As a network showcasing music of alternative spirit, David Bowie is at our core, and it's fantastic that our listeners will have the opportunity to hear this radio show for the first time ever."

6 Music will also use the Pin Ups radio show to celebrate a day of cover versions. Listeners will be asked to nominate their favourite covers, culminating in Gideon Coe's show (9pm-midnight) which will feature in its entirety suggestions from the listeners.

Here are the songs played in the short recording and a transcript of Bowie's chat between the tracks. Known for his many alter egos, his delivery is in the style of born and bred Londoner David Jones, the music loving, club going man about town:


* Rosalyn (The Pretty Things)

"I'd already been up Ealing Broadway to see Alexis Korner's Blues Incorporated, and that's when he had a killer line up with Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Cyril Davies and Spike Heatley on bass, Graham Bond on organ and alto with of course John Baldry on vocals. I think most London art school students found themselves carted up there some time or other. Viv Andrews and Dick Taylor for sure. Dick was at Sidcup forming The Pretty Things with Phil after he got chucked out of the Stones. Phil was pretty electric and cleared most halls in about 15 minutes."

* Here Comes the Night (Them)

"Anyway, there was lots to choose from - up the Windmill or the Elephant, get blocked and bussed over to Richmond. Brian had cancer and was going to drop any day, Mick never washed. How could this new lot replace the Stones? Yardbirds? Any wallop, they blasted out the old solos."

* I Wish You Would (The Yardbirds)

"The Liddypool [Liverpool] thing didn't mean a light up Richmond. It affected one band who dropped the 'beat' bit and became The Merseys. Never saw 'em play but they hung about a lot."

* Sorrow (The Merseys)

"So there you were, you had the Prettys, Yardbirds and, if you ventured down The Marquee on a Sunday night, the Floyd with dear old Syd, or The Animals down Windmill Street at the Scene Club, Eel Pie Island Ricky Tick Club for The Creation or Reg's mob The Action. But the biggest buzz was back at The Marquee. They dressed weeks out of date, but they did all the right stuff - Martha and Vandellas and all that. A lot of action on a night. They were our band, The Who."

* I Can't Explain (The Who)
