Robert Fripp and David Bowie wait patiently for their turn at Space Invaders during a
break in the recording of "Heroes", while Brian Eno goes on to attain a personal best.
I, I can remember, Standing, by the wall...
Following on from the news exactly two months ago that Radio 2 will be airing a Mark Radcliffe presented Bowie documentary in January, (10.14.2006 NEWS: LENNOX LEAKS BOWIE RADIO DOCUMENTARY DETAILS) it seems he'll be doing the same for another Bowie documentary a few days earlier on January 2nd.
"On 8 January David Bowie turns 60 years old. In recognition, Radio 2 celebrates with a programme focusing on Bowie's remarkable Berlin period in the 70s and the city's influence, past and present, on him and his music. From Kabaret to Krautrock and beyond, Berlin."
The albums Low, "Heroes" and Lodger are often referred to, misleadingly, as the Berlin trilogy. But, as I'm sure you know, much of Low was recorded just outside Paris and Lodger was recorded in Montreux and New York. Anyway, it looks like the programme won't be hindered by such trifles.
I should point out that it has been made with no involvement from DB himself, and I wouldn't be surprised if most of the interviews are from the archives.
