STOCKMAN ON BBC RADIO 4 SOUL MUSIC - DAVID BOWIE: LIFE ON MARS

Bowie Lfe On Mars

The question mark at the end of David Bowie Life On Mars? I saw it. Right there on that bright orange RCA label of the 7" vinyl single that I bought when I was 11 years old. It was so clear in my mind and answered the debate as to whether my friend Pat wanted Space Oddity or Life On Mars? played at his funeral. His wife Gloria said she was sure it was the one with the question mark. I knew immediately.

So, we played Life On Mars? and the question mark was the heart of my sermon. Questions of life. Questions in the Bible.

Little did I know that it would find me talking about Life On Mars? on Radio 4 this Saturday morning. It is part of the fantastic Soul Music series; a special edition for Bowie's birthday.
