BOWIE will be making his presence felt in yet another very big way on the Internet via "Rolling Stone Radio," the first international radio network, created by JAMtv/Rolling Stone Network and Real Networks on November 2. "BowieNet radio" can be found on Channel 13 on this new Internet service which features 12 music channels playing everything from classical, to jazz, to country, to alternative and beyond, broadcast 24 hours a day around the world. On Channel 13, BOWIE will create the playlist, acting as program director. "As DJ for the BowieNet radio station on Rolling Stone Radio, my first playlist will include favorite songs from the last five decades," says BOWIE. "I'm hoping music fans all over the world tune in and join me."

Also on November 2, as previously announced, BOWIE is hosting a song writing contest, whereby contestants compete to become co-writer on one of his new songs, titled "What's Really Happening." BOWIE has written the music and chorus for the song and participants are asked to submit three verses. BOWIE will pick the winner (from a list of finalists chosen by the public), and the song "What's Really Happening" will be in rotation on a number of the other Rolling Stone Radio channels.
