Listen to Iggy Pop’s radio show tribute to David Bowie

The punk pioneer paid tribute to his late friend and icon with a dedicated playlist, recalling some of their best times together

Iggy Pop paid tribute to David Bowie, his late friend and collaborator, in a dedicated radio, where he played his favourite Bowie songs and spoke about their times together.

“The way I chose them was from memory,” Pop explained. “I took out a piece of paper and a pen and closed my eyes and just remembered what I liked at different times. I'm weighing things that are a little more low on the totem pole, but not obscure.”

Pop opened the ‘Iggy Confidential’ BBC Radio 6 show with “Boys Keep Swinging”, from Bowie’s 1979 album Lodger. He spun tracks from across the icon’s huge career, from “Station to Station”, to “Diamond Dogs” and “Stay”.

He also detailed some of his fondest memories with Bowie, like visiting him at his Saturday Night Live appearance and eating burgers with Frank Zappa.
