    One of my favorite classic TV shows of all time! Had some great guest stars like: James Caan, Johnny Carson, Ted Knight, Don Rickles, & my favorite Bernie Kopell(Doctor on the Love Boat) who played the unforgettable KAOS agent Siegfried with that pretentious German accent!

    Indeed that was one funny show. I have the first season dvd. And I think it's on METV tonight at midnight after Svengolie and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. I always joke at work about using the cone of silence because nothing is ever kept discreet.

    [​IMG]

    SiriusXM Radio announced today that it will launch The David Bowie Channel, the commercial-free music channel featuring the complete works of innovative music pioneer David Bowie.

    The David Bowie Channel will launch on Wednesday, October 30 at 12:00 pm ET and will run through Tuesday, November 12, via satellite on channel 111. The David Bowie Channel will be available as a 24/7 channel online and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and mobile devices beginning Wednesday, October 30 for an extended period.

    The limited-run channel will feature music from the vast body of artistry from Bowie's entire career, from his earliest recordings through 2013's The Next Day. The David Bowie Channel will also exclusively premiere the five unheard songs from Bowie's The Next Day Extra, the 3 disc collectors edition; the songs will only be heard on The David Bowie Channel until November 5, the day The Next Day Extra is released.

    "'Icon' gets thrown around a lot, but for David Bowie, one of pop and rock music's greatest, most unconventional artists, it's textbook accurate. We can't wait to bring to our listeners a full-time channel that offers an expertly curated deep dive into his artistic genius. From Major Tom to Ziggy Stardust to the Thin White Duke through his latest work, The Next Day, the channel will bring together every phase of his pioneering music, and all will hear this enduring body of work, which is as relevant today as it was at each and every phase of David's storied career," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM.

    David Bowie's extensive, legendary catalog is one of the most revered in popular culture, and includes all-time great million selling albums and artistic landmarks such as The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, Aladdin Sane, Young Americans, Low, Heroes, Scary Monsters, Let's Dance, The Buddha of Suburbia and more. Within the featured catalog are Top 30 Billboard hit singles including Space Oddity, Young Americans, Fame, Golden Years, Let's Dance, China Girl and Blue Jean.

    The David Bowie Channel is an example of SiriusXM channels created with iconic and leading artists, including Bruce Springsteen's E Street Radio, Ozzy Osbourne's Ozzy's Boneyard, Pearl Jam Radio, Eminem's Shade 45, Willie Nelson's Willie's Roadhouse, The Pink Floyd Channel, B.B.

    Not a big fan of Bowie, but I must admit it's pretty darned cool so far :thumbsup:
    I have to wonder what his career would have been like without the killer licks from his guitarist Mick Ronson- really an under-rated and very unheralded musician who also played with Ian Hunter of Mott the Hoople.

    Ronson was a rockin' guitar player.
    Bowie always seemed to surround himself with talented musicians and producers.
