Classic Album Sundays: David Bowie
Founded by radio host, music producer, label owner and journalist, Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy, Classic Album Sundays allows listeners to fully immerse themselves into an album by exploring its context, the making of and a full replay of the album on vinyl.
This month, Colleen focuses on David Bowie's Hunky Dory. It is one of Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy’s favourite Bowie albums and she has recently been hanging out with producer Ken Scott who has told her some great stories. Scott engineered “The Man Who Sold the World” and at the time thought Bowie was good but probably wasn’t going to go anywhere. When Bowie asked him to co-produce “Hunky Dory” and presented his new batch of songs, Scott was duly impressed and realised what a great songwriter Bowie had become. Colleen has more stories up her sleeve, too.
