Each David Bowie album is unique. Some are universally lionised, some regarded as merely legendary, some, pretentious codswallop. But we all have our favourites. In this series of podcasts, I meet up with writers, musicians, critics and assorted woodland folk, to explore their choice of album in rambling roundelays of free-form facting, anorak-grade geekery, pompous pontification, impassioned argument and highly-contentious chat. I like to think these podcasts exercise the minds of some of the world’s (well, at least the bit I am in) most eminent Bowiebores, my lugubrious interrogations spurring them to wax lyrical and entertainingly - just for you. I hope you enjoy listening to them.

    THE 198MORE SHOW WITH NICK PEGG PART TWO

    Join us for this 90 minute epic as we continue our mid 80s odyssey through the hectic schedule of D. Bowie, who is dressed in a frightwig and tights hurtling around labyrinths, or smoother than a filtered Turkish gasper, suave and Soho-sexy for Absolute Beginners. We get to grips with the music from both movies, debate Bowie's astonishing work rate, enjoy his Iggy Pop impersonation, tell you all you ever wanted to know about the Italian evergreen 'Volare' and Pegg shares some fruity opinions on Chris de Burgh and the Thompson Twins. We're very happy with this one and I hope you like it too! STAY TOONED: Next up - Live Aid and beyond. Join the gang, share the love.

    THE 198MORE SHOW WITH NICK PEGG PART ONE

    THE 198MORE SHOW WITH NICK PEGG PART ONE

    From 1980 to 1990, David Bowie did a great many things. Only four of them were 'Let's Dance', 'Tonight', 'Never Let Me Down' and 'Tin Machine'. In the first of an epic two-part episode, me and Nick Pegg explore the many many exciting, odd, unusual and bold artistic steps Bowie made between his official albums during the decade that won't be forgotten.

    Adam Buxton on Scary Monsters

    Adam Buxton on Scary Monsters

    In this episode, I discuss 1980’s Scary Monsters and Super Creeps with podcaster, comedian, author and actor Adam Buxton, in a suitably rambling chat that takes in the making of Scary Monsters, the young Buxton's first experiences of Bowie universe and subsequent Zavid obsessions. We also talk about the album at length, making it at least almost to the end of side one.

Essential for Bowie fans. Often funny, never boring.

I came to this podcast via the wonderful Adam Buxton/Chris O’Leary episodes. Can’t wait to hear more! Arsalan Mohammad manages to pick through the minutiae of Bowie’s work and life without boring the audience, or being an anorak.

Can anyone help?

This is a very enjoyable pod with a knowledgeable and enthusiastic host who finds others who share his enthusiasm. I particularly lenjoyedthe Berlin period. Can anyone recommend a book about this period? @lightsthelights
