This is a rare original signed David Bowie BBC Radio-1 performance contract dated 23 September 1971 for broadcast dated 4 October 1971,the contract is signed D Bowie with his initials.

The wall mounted framed contract includes a photocopy of the reverse side with the entertainment booking seal which is unseen due to the front of the contract only showing in the frame.

The contract is colour blue with blue ink for the Service Radio-1 Prog no: 1G1394Q and has a good quality printed picture of David Bowie 'Ziggy Stardust' wall mounted in a nice heavy duty wood frame with glass. The frame is 25 inches wide x 21 inches long.

Top valuation estimate from Head of Department, Entertainment Memorabilia, Bonhams, London £1,500.00.

Radio was very popular back in the 1970's, not many people had television sets and the picture was black and white and wavey! It's no surprise this radio contract is a radio 1 recording as most music fans back in the early 70's listened to music mainly on a record player, radio 1 and the Luxemburg channel.

David Robert Jones Born: 8 January 1947 Died: 10 January 2016, (known professionally as David Bowie)

"Strange, mad celebration"

Out on February 26th 2016 is the vinyl box set of Bowie At The Beeb, originally mooted for release in 2000.

Previously released on CD the same year, this is the debut of the Best Of David Bowie's BBC radio sessions from 1968 - 1972 on vinyl.

The 39-track 4-disk set comes in a lift off lid box and features a full colour 20 page booklet. This vinyl version features Oh! You Pretty Things from the Sounds Of The 70's Bob Harris session, broadcast in September 1971, which was previously exclusive to the Japanese release of the CD (please see below for more details). This performance features just David and Mick Ronson as a duo.

Completely exclusive to this collection, and therefore making its debut, is the once lost The Supermen from the Sounds Of The 70's Andy Ferris session, broadcast in March 1970, and performed by The Hype. This recording was only rediscovered during the research for the original CD set and remained unreleased until now.

Keep reading for the tracklisting for the eight sides.
