Get us to the church on time! This week's episode of the Totally 80s Podcast is all about David Bowie.

In the first of a two-part deep-dive, Lyndsey Parker and John Hughes talk about Bowie's highs and lows during the decade that reintroduced him to a new generation. From Let's Dance to Live Aid, "Dancing in the Streets" to "Dancing with the Big Boys" and beyond - no stone is left unturned here.

And they're not going it alone, either - Rolling Stone editor and superfan Rob Sheffield, author of 2016's loving tribute On Bowie joins to pay homage to the man they called Major Tom (or Jareth The Goblin King...or Screaming Lord Byron). Whether you're listening today or Tonight, this episode is sure to never let you down.
