David Bowie's Package from Adam Buxton #Bowie6Music

For just seven more days, you can enjoy Adam's wonderful doc-com-mentile-ry on the BBC iPlayer or Listen Again feature. The tracklisting is also on that page.

I believe Adam aims to put some nuggets on his Soundcloud so subscribe and imbibe.

You can buy the zine Adam referred to here.

Do check the rest of the 6Music site for all the other wonderful Bowie shows.

If you'd like to read Adam wittering on about Hunky Dory, this is the word to click.

In the spirit of balance, I asked Tom Robinson to play Joe's Bathtime for Bowie during his 'Now Playing' show that followed Adam's. Tom is a very lovely being and so he elegantly obliged.

You can buy a beautifully mastered version of Joe's song and countless* other warblings from Adam and Joe's Song Wars here.

 *In the sense that I can't be bothered to count them.

It Wuzza Lovely Surprise..... #AdamBuxton #DavidBowie

To wake up to a trail for Adam's Bowie show was a delightful surprise this morning.

There's a whole bunch of lovely Bowie-based stuff happening on 6Music this week but Adam's slot will be at 4pm on Sunday.

After lunch, another one popped into my ears.

Red Nose Day: Adam Buxton joins in the Shaun Keaveny Fur Fun

Any dedicated 6Music listener will know that Shaun Keaveny shed some fur today in the most brutal fashion but for the cause of Comic Relief. Adam Buxton was there to master the ceremony in front of a lucky audience in the BBC Radio Theatre.

There are pictures here and you can listen to a clip on the 6Music website.

The full audio from that part of the show is below.

You can donate in so many ways and it's really easy. £5 buys a mosquito net that can help prevent one person getting malaria or provide, transport and administer a vaccine. It can help offer support to someone in isolated distress a few yards from your home.

It was just a bit of back and a leg this time but if we don't act now, it could be an entire beard. For Boggins' sake, let's make sure we don't allow this mild de-fluffing to turn into a beardless epidemic. You wouldn't want to be reminded of how Adam looked in The Persuasionists, would you?

When you've done that, have a look at the other ways our beloved 6Music has been getting involved with the Red Nose Day thingies. Yet another reason why we saved our secret station.
