A pre-FM BBC session by the legendary David Bowie. It's sourced from an in-house disc, this edited version keeps all the music together and places the 'interview' at the end. After much joking David comes clean and admits there will be no touring work for the album 'Hours' released a month earlier.

A series of promotional appearances were scheduled to publicise the new album. David also recorded an interview with Billy Bragg and a further two session tracks on this day for the BBC programme 'Saturday Music Mix'.

01. Survive
02. Drive-in Saturday
03. Something in the Air
04. Can't Help Thinking About Me > Repetition
05. Interview
