Cat, DB, GAD and Slicky, slay 'em at the TOTP recording yesterday.
So inviting, so enticing...
You've all no doubt read various accounts of David Bowie's TOTP recording on the MBs. David and the band performed a handful of songs for the assembled BowieNetters and guests, and judging by your comments, a jolly special time was had by all. David chatted and joked between songs, and even invited fans to come and collect autographs at the end of the show.
The songs played were: 'Slow Burn', 'Cactus', 'I Took A Trip On A Gemini Spaceship', and 'Everyone says "Hi"'...all for Top of the Pops, and then after a quick costume change David returned with a few Bowie classics for TOTP 2, which were: 'Sound & Vision', 'Ashes to Ashes' and 'Fame', followed by an impromptu duet of 'Absolute Beginners' with Gail. The session was rounded off with another take of 'Slow Burn' for a BBC children's show.

By all accounts, the first broadcast of any of this stuff is due on Friday's TOTP, but we'll get back to you with a final broadcast schedule shortly. Meanwhile, go check out an excellent journal from Dick Mac, that hasn't made its way on to the MBs, by clicking here. Thanks Dick, glad you finally...oh no, that would give away your punch-line! };-)
