The air of anticipation is palpable, whatever that means. The Main Man himself live on the telephone courtesy of Mark 'n' Lard and Radio One tomorrow. The TV broadcast of Bowie at the BBC Radio Theatre followed by Cracked Actor on BBC2 on Sunday evening, and the long-awaited Bowie at the Beeb 3CD set available from Monday morning. The full page ads are coming thick and fast (NME above, UNCUT below) with more to come. There are also nation-wide in-store promotions and some competitions for Bowie at the Beeb at UK chains such as MVC, WOOLWORTHS and Virgin.
I will also be posting a short interview with Kevin Cann tomorrow. Long-term Bowie fans will know the name, but a lack of space unfortunately prevents me from posting his impressive Bowie-related CV. Kevin has been working closely on Bowie at the Beeb, (with EMI project co-ordinater Nigel Reeve) as art director and researcher for the project. As if all this wasn't enough we will be running a competition next week to win Bowie at the Beeb goodies such as Promotional T-shirts, posters and the CDs themselves. Phew!
