(ITS) Syndicated radio show In The Studio with Redbeard: The Stories Behind History's Greatest Rock Bands have released a special two-part radio rockumentary that examines the mid-Seventies post-Ziggy Stardust American era of the legendary David Bowie. The show sent over details:

By 1975 David Bowie had abandoned the Glam Rock he had virtually invented in the guise of the ego-tripping tragicomic Fallen Rock Star, Ziggy Stardust, first as New York City blue-eyed soul man, then the LA decadence of his Thin White Duke persona. David Bowie was rock's full Moon, irresistible in his pulling power, while the rest of the rock world was like the tide, following inexorably yet always tagging behind.

In The Studio host Redbeard has assembled a two-part radio special with interviews he conducted with the late David Bowie about this mid-Seventies U.S. period that produced the albums Diamond Dogs, Young Americans and Station to Station which spawned the hits "Rebel, Rebel", "Young Americans", "Golden Years" and the # 1 hit "Fame". Bowie shared with In The Studio host Redbeard the mindset of his transition out of his famed Ziggy character.

"I had this terror in my mind that I was going to be trapped with Ziggy and the Spiders... and there was no way I was going to be trapped inside that character as being the rest of my life... But I didn't quite know what I was going to do. I really sort of painted myself into a corner by finishing Ziggy and the Spiders. And in a way that is a sort of freedom, because it meant I had everything and nothing all at the same time." - David Bowie
