A painter, I am not. However, I did paint the picture you see here of Bowie some odd years ago for my wife and it currently hangs in our home music studio.

Here is the painting my wife did a few years back of Bowie’s “Tonight” album. The canvas is magnetically attached to our refrigerator. She’s infinitely more talented!

My wife and I have been Bowie fans since we’ve known music and we can honestly say his death is still a shock. We’re heading to France next month and decided to take a special 6hr. train trip to Holland to see the “DAVID BOWIE is” exhibit at the Groninger Museum. Groninger, in Groningen, is hosting the last stop in this exhibition.

Some things can’t be missed.

So, we will take two Fridays (January 15th and January 22nd) to play our Bowie favorites, our favorite Bowie covers, as well as excerpts from past interviews and movies. We hope you will join us to celebrate… David Bowie.
