What on ‘Built for Speed’, Friday 15th January 2016

This week on ‘Built For Speed’ we pay tribute to the genius of a musical pioneer sadly lost this week, David Bowie.  We’ll play a selection of Bowie favourites and look at his impact on music and culture.  There’s also plenty of films to discuss including new teen lit sci-fi adventure The Fifth Wave and the Golden Globe nominated Carol which stars Cate Blanchett.  Don’t forget our regular preview of upcoming gigs and TV.  Check out ‘Built For Speed’, Friday 8-10 pm.
