Jarvis Cocker pays tribute to David Bowie with two-hour radio show

Pulp fronman played rare material and old interviews as part of his 'Sunday Service' show on 6 Music

Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker paid tribute to David Bowie yesterday (January 17), broadcasting a two-hour show filled with his music.

Cocker’s regular Sunday Service show on BBC 6 Music took on a Bowie theme on what marked one week since his passing. The DJ played clips of old BBC interviews with Bowie, classic singles and more rare material too. The show opened with ‘Sound and Vision’ and ended with the demo of ‘Hunky Dory’ era song ‘Quicksand’.

The full two hour show can be heard here.

As reported, producer Tony Visconti has revealed Bowie was planning to record and release another album after ‘Blackstar’. It was previously suggested in a separate report that there is material leftover from the ‘Blackstar’ sessions which could see a future release.


David Bowie has been cremated in New York according to reports. It is believed he was privately cremated without any friends and family present, as per his wishes. He wanted “to go without any fuss”, a source told two UK newspapers.

He passed away on January 10 following an 18 month battle with cancer. Reports have since suggested that he “died from liver cancer” after “surviving six heart attacks”.
