Another icon of music has passed away today, with the loss of David Bowie at the age of 69.
Born David Robert Jones on 8th January 1947, Bowie’s innovative style made him a star of the 70’s and 80’s with hits such as Space Oddity, Life On Mars, Ashes To Ashes and Let’s Dance, earning him 5 UK Number One singles and 8 Number One albums. He was set to perform live for the final time at Glastonbury this year, but sadly, Bowie didn’t make it to the show. He died on Monday 11th Janaury 2016 after a battle with cancer. David touched the lives of many people, including the Presenters and DJs of Hillz FM, who will pay tribute to their hero this week. Liam Cook will play 3 David Bowie songs on Good Morning Hillfields this Tuesday (7am, 12th January). David Buckle will remember an idol of his genre in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s hour (Tuesday 12th January, 5pm) Hillz’s resident Rock expert Keith Fabrique will dedicate his Rock Show to Bowie on Wednesday (10am, 13th Wednesday) and Noizee B will also showcase some of Bowie’s best tracks on Friday (15th Janaury, 3pm)
Hillz would like to extend our condolences to the family, friends and fans of David Bowie at this difficult time. A life well lived which will never be forgotten. RIP David Bowie 1947-2016
