This could have been posted on a couple of RIP threads - how sad.

I'm sure you've all listened to most of the Bowie stuff on various BBC radio stations this past week but this was one of my favourites. Hearing Ronno swearing in his Yorkshire accent made my day

Finally... the full 17 minute, four song performance on the British TV show "The White Room" from 1995.... I remember seeing this on the night and thinking "Jee-zus!!"
