On January 10, 2016, the music world was surprised and saddened to learn one of the biggest rock and roll icons of the last four decades had died. Due to his desire for privacy, the public was unaware that David Bowie had been diagnosed with liver cancer 18 months prior, and two days after his 69th birthday – and the release of his final studio album – he died of the disease at his New York home. A special episode of the Documenting Popular Music podcast traces Bowie’s career.
The American Popular Song Goes On and On…
In an original, six-minute feature, the O&F Studios has created a sweeping, retrospective collage that showcases music and artists from America’s popular songbook of the 70s and 80s. This feature is built on the tune “The American Popular Song,” written by Tom Hensley and sung by Neil Diamond.
As a bonus, the feature has been turned into a fast-paced, music video, available on the O&F Studios’ Facebook page, with more than 100 photographs that accent a soundtrack that will take you back in time.
