David Bowie’s new album, The Next Day, is out as of Tuesday, March 12. To celebrate, CBC resident Bowie scholar, Q’s Jian Ghomeshi, is handing over his signature new wave station to the Thin White Duke for one week. From now until Tuesday, March 19, Jian’s New Wave is Jian’s All Bowie, a 24/7 stream of your favourite Bowie songs.

You’ll hear classics like “Space Oddity,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Heroes” and “Let’s Dance,” as well as deeper cuts from Bowie’s 46-year 26-album recording career. You’ll also hear a track from the new album every hour, including the first two singles, “Where Are We Now?” and “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).”

Figures that the tin-eared Jian would list the ho-hum "Let's Dance" as a "classic".

You are the Larry King of Canadian radio, Jian.

I love that this stream exists as it gives me a chance to remember Bowie's works outside of my favourite albums.  However, I want to point out that, in the pictures above, his eyes have been coloured incorrectly.  Only one of his eyes is blue.

Sorry, rather, the dilation of one makes it look as though it is a different colour.  The picture above doesn't really reflect that.

As a recent Bowie convert, I recently purchased his complete 70's output, and I am completely immersed. Amazing that he was able to maintain the level of quality despite the state that he was in for most of the decade. Nice to have a channel to also hear all the stuff that I'm not ready to commit to yet. Thanks Jian!

Can we just keep this going and make it an offical "all Bowie all the time" stream???

I have been enjoying this all-Bowie stream very, very much!!!  (His catalogue is extensive enough it really could warrant a permanent channel, there's certainly enough variety to never get bored!)  Anyway, thanks so much Jian.  Great selections and a fun, fitting tribute to the release of his wonderful new album which has been such a happy surprise for so many of us.  :)

Thank you so much for this Jian! I got a chance to listen to some familiar Bowie tunes and ones I didn't know. Now I have some new favourites! Initially I wasn't sure if I liked his new album, but  while listening to this station in the background when I was doing some work, I have to confess that I really LOVE some of the songs on his new album - especially the title The Next Day. Thanks for opening that door! I'm looking forward to the day you get to interview Bowie 'cause I know you will do an exceptional job!!
