Marc Riley and DB backstage during the soundcheck at Manchester Academy in 1997.
As ever, Marc managed to get the Bowie hair down pat, while he still had his own!
But why is DB laughing so? Could it be Riley's refusal to drop the Glam Rock make-up?

Waiting For The Man(ish Boy)...

Popular BBC 6 Music DJ Marc Riley continues his conquest of the airwaves with another regular slot on the same station he presents his Rocket Science show on Saturdays.

Radio's biggest Bowie fan now has a new two-hour show from 10:00pm UK time on Sunday nights called MINT. The programme is aimed at record collectors, (thus the name of the show) and looks at collecting and related areas.

Among other exciting items, in tonight's show Marc has an interview with ex-Manish Boy, Bob Solly, who played organ on DB's second ever release in 1965, the quite brilliant and underrated single, I Pity The Fool. The 45 was backed by David's first ever composition to make it to vinyl, Take My Tip...as if you didn't know!

If Bob is on his usual form you can expect some interesting anecdotes about the young Bowie that you most likely have never heard before.

You can listen to the show live online by clicking on either of Riley's ridiculously-rouged cheeks in the picture above.
