BBC radio listeners to vote for their favourite David Bowie albums

By Julia Hunt

David Bowie fans are being given the chance to pick their favourite of his albums a year after he died at the age of 69.

BBC Radio 6 Music is launching a listener vote to mark both the first anniversary of the music star's death, and what would have been his 70th birthday.

Bowie was born on January 8, 1947 and died on January 10, 2016 after battling cancer.

The station's presenters have compiled a shortlist of Bowie's records that listeners can pick from, including Aladdin Sane, Heroes, Low and Bowie's final album Blackstar, which was released days before his death.

The chosen album will be played out in full by Gideon Coe in his show on January 9.
