It's happening now...

I'm sure you've already seen this when it was posted on the official Bowie Facebook page a few days ago, but here's a quick reminder of how you can still join in, if you haven't already...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This weekend Davie Bowie turns 65, so on Friday January 6 from 7pm, Now Playing @ 6Music will be charging its glasses and compiling a playlist celebrating his music and influence over the last four decades . But we need YOU to choose what we play.

We need you to suggest your favourite Bowie - and Bowie related - tracks to play. It could be:
*Your favourite Bowie singles, album tracks and rarities
*Musicians who influenced Bowie - Marc Bolan, Syd Barrett, The Velvet Underground?
*Artists who he’s collaborated with during his career; maybe Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger, Brian Eno or Nile Rodgers?
*The bands Bowie’s influenced, from Visage to Roxy Music via Suede, Gary Numan, The Pixies and the New York Dolls, to name but a few.

Go here to get in touch via Facebook, e-mail, Twitter and for a link to drag tracks to the shared Spotify playlist.

Whatever you do, if you’re a Bowie fan make sure you’re tuned in to Now Playing with Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music this Friday from 7pm.
