Earlier today, the comedian Eddie Izzard made a request on Twitter. "Please could every radio station around the globe just play David Bowie music today," he asked. "I think the world owes him that."
At least one DJ heard him: Zane Lowe is currently hosting a Bowie tribute on Apple's Beats 1 Radio. "When I think of art and what's possible, I think of David Bowie," Lowe explained this morning. "A hero who inspired heroes... We're going to play a lot of David Bowie on the show today. Any and all tributes and song suggestions are welcome." On the airwaves, he declared that Bowie had "an incredible life, well lived," before queuing up an early classic, "Suffragette City." Listen here.
