Philly Loves Bowie, and so does XPN.
With live concerts, theme parties, art exhibits, and even an ice cream flavor celebrating his David Bowie’s music and raising funds for great causes, Philly Loves BowieWeek is in full effect and WXPN has our lightning bolt makeup on in the city where he recorded Young Americans and a live album.
Tune in all week long for Bowie features and a Friday mixtape on the XPN Morning Show, covers, rare live recordings, covers and more for lunch with Mike Vasilikos, and Dan Reed’s Highs in the ‘70s, highlighting a different Bowie album each day at 6 p.m. Off the airwaves and out on the town, Philly Loves Bowie Week presents a packed itinerary of Bowie-related events all around the city, from dance parties to pop-up art exhibits. You can peruse a full schedule of events and programs below; WXPN programming appears in magenta, and Philly Loves Bowie Week events appear in amber.
It’s been 7 years since we lost David Bowie – let’s dance and celebrate his life and music, this week – on XPN and all over Philly. Asterisks indicate programming you can listen to on air!
