Listen: Bowie Promo For 1973 “Pin-Ups” Album

In 1973 David Bowie released an excellent covers album, Pin-Ups, featuring some of his fave songs.

To promote the album he created this promotion in which he plays five tracks from Pin-Ups: (Things’ “Rosalyn,” Them’s “Here Comes the Night,” the Yardbirds’ “I Wish You Would,” the Merseys’ “Sorrow” and the Who’s “I Can’t Explain”). Each is preceded by a brief anecdote about the band that originally recorded the song.

BBC Radio has dug up this old recording, and you can listen right here, right now.
