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 THREE
It's Live Aid Special! Join us as we join Bowie behind the scenes at the global jukebox on July 13 1985 for a day that changed pop'n'roll history
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
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 & Chris O'Leary on Scary Monsters (Part 2)
Join me, Adam Buxton and author Chris O'Leary for a colourful and lively plunge into Bowie's 1980 watershed album Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)
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.
Tim Worthington on Holy Holy
"Clangers" expert and Tin Machine timelord Tim Worthington meets me to talk about the oft-overlooked but deeply significant 1971 single Holy Holy
Now I understand what podcasts are supposed to be
I generally do not listen to podcasts nor write reviews, but this programme is exceptional. Insightful commentary and witty dialogue make this passionately researched and charmingly esoteric podcast an entertaining and informative way to while away the hours. If you’re a fan of David Bowie’s incredible range of work, or a passerby looking to step into the beautiful and creative universe he created, this podcast will do you right.
Please keep them coming!
AlbumtoAlbum: The David Bowie Album Podcast is an excellent and wonderful piece of work due to, in part, the breadth of knowledgable and charismatic guests that appear on each podcast opining about their favorite Bowie album, but also because Arsalan has meticulously researched and presented his subject so well. Each episode leaves you richer than you were before in terms of ‘Bowieology’ and of course each podcasts sends you back to the record of choice with a new and wider appreciation of its merits. I recommend this podcast to Bowie fans and music fans alike. I have found it to be an indispensable source of information for all things Bowie. Thank you.
Jason Dobson, David Bowie Walking Tour NYC
