On the 11th of January Much Music in Canada had a three hour special about Bowie. I think it was showed after the documentary "Five Years" and also repeated at night.

Is it any Canadian user here that captured this special?

If you have it (with any quality), please upload.

Thanks in advance,
Jan Erik

(EDIT: I initally presumed the content mentioned in this post was aired on January 11th 2016 (the day DB died...). I got my dates mixed up - the content mentioned in this post aired at the end of the week of Bowie's death: on Sunday, January 17th 2016.)

MUCH/Muchmusic aired David Bowie retrospect content on Sunday January 17th 2016: it was on constant loop for the entirety of that day. However, I unfortunately do not have any recording devices plugged into my TV, so I wasn't able to record any of it. I did, however, take notes about what was aired that day. I wasn't aware of anything on the day of Bowie's death (January 11th 2016) outside stories on evening newscasts. I scarcely watch the channel anymore, and the content on January 17th 2016 was the first time in a long while that I watched the channel for more than a few minutes.

It wasn't anything huge (like the BBC airing the whole Glastonbury 2000 show on radio), mainly prepared stuff which ran on autopilot. No new retrospective from MuchMusic personalities past or present, just archival content.

So here's what was aired on January 17th 2016:
MUCH/MuchMusic's tribute for Bowie which aired on consisted of 21 Bowie music videos from 1972 to 2016 alongside an edited version of the Five Years documentary.

Even though I say the videos are from 1972-2016 it is technically 1969-2016, because the audio for Space Oddity is from 1969 (the music video is the one which was filmed in 1972). The music video count includes two live clips: Changes from Hammmersmith Odeon 1973 (meant for music video distribution in the 1980s and 1990s I would presume, since there were freeze-frame stills and wipe effects) and Fame from the BBC Radio Theatre concert from 2000. One of the videos is from Tin Machine: namely the music video for Under The God.

These were the 21 music videos shown: Space Oddity, Changes(live at Hammersmith Odeon July 3 1973), The Jean Genie, Fame(live at BBC Radio Theatre June 27 2000), "Heroes", Look Back In Anger, Ashes To Ashes, Fashion, Under Pressure, Let's Dance, China Girl, Modern Love, Blue Jean (culled from the Jazzin' For Blue Jean short film), Dancing In The Street, Absolute Beginners, Under The God, Fame '90, The Heart's Filthy Lesson, I'm Afraid of Americans (NiN remix), Blackstar and Lazarus.

Most of the music videos have been officially released(some in better quality than what was broadcast - some of the videos were sourced from the Rykodisc VHS/Laserdisc The Video Collection and not the 2002 Best of Bowie 2DVD set), or are available on the tracker in more complete form (Fame from the BBC Radio Theatre 2000 concert). For the technichally inclined, the MUCH/MuchMusic broadcast for the BBC 2000 performance of Fame was probably converted from PAL to NTSC.

If anybody did record the Bowie tribute on MUCH/Muchmusic on Jan. 17th 2016, the only thing worth noting (and possibly worth uploading here) are the archive interview clips of Bowie being interviewed by Muchmusic over the years: namely from 1987, 1990, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, and 2002. There were also some Muchmusic archive interviews of some other artists praising Bowie over the years: one with Brian Eno, one with Moby, one with Peter Gabriel, and a brief one from Lou Reed (backstage from the 50th Birthday concert). There might have been one with Iggy Pop but I'm not sure about there being one with Iggy. These segments were aired inbetween most of the music videos, before commercial breaks for the music videos, and before commercial breaks for the Five Years documentary.

Following the music videos was the Five Years documentary. It was the edited version(60-70 min.), which cut out all of the stuff discussing The Man Who Fell To Earth, and a fair chunk of the material discussing the albums Low and "Heroes".

After the Five Years documentary ended, they re-aired the 21 music videos, then the FY documentary again. Both of these two sets of content were on loop that whole day. it was one of the VERY few times that the channel has devoted an entire programming day to music content in recent years. Also, per Canadian broadcast standard practices(the programming was aired during during daytime hours), audio edits were made:
-The lyric 'Jonny wants pussy in cars' was clipped to 'Jonny wants -ussy in cars' in the music video for I'm Afraid Of Americans.
-Obscenties said by some of the interviewees in the Five Years documentary (Earl Slick and Robert Fripp in particular) were muted out.

So this is was MUCH's tribute to Bowie which aired on January 17th 2016: 21 music videos from 1972-2016, the edited Five Years documentary, and Muchmusic archive interviews from 1987-2002.

Thanks for reading this summary. Apologies to people who read this earlier, I presumed this aired on January 11th but I mixed up the dates.

Thanks for the summary. I understand that there is not that much of interest, but there is one special thing I'm looking for.

I have heard that Bowie Station was mentioned a couple of times during that day by 2 VJs(?) that were talking about Bowie. Once they even showed the address for the site.

It is the first and only time I know of that Bowie Station has been mentioned in any kind of media.

Did some calendar checking: I was in error about when MUCH/Muchmusic aired the stuff I said in the first comment. They aired the music videos and the Five Years doc on constant loop on Sunday January 17th 2016, not on January 11th 2016(the day Bowie died). IIRC, it was billed as "Bowie on Much" on my digital cable listings. Apologies for the mix up. Such mistakes occur when recalling things from memory. (I've modified my original post apologizing for the mixup, clarifying the date)

So it now remains a mystery if anything was done on January 11th. If they did anything, I didn't notice. Barring the content aired on January 17th, I scarcely watch MUCH/Muchmusic - most of their content isn't as music-related as it used to be.

Now I'm a bit curious that an official music channel such as Muchmusic would mention this site!

Sounds like MTV Europe. Used to be music 24/7 but now there is hardly any music on the channel. I wonder what the M in MTV stands for...
