Pronouncing David Bowie

The BBC has helped settle a dispute and I wanted to share.

David Bowie is indeed pronounced BOH-ee (-oh as in no) rather than BOW-ee (-ow as in now), which is commonly how Brits pronounce it (well, except for David Bowie himself).

For the record, while we are at it, his supermodel wife is Iman (pronounced ee-Man), rather than eye-Man.

Now that that is out of the way, Let’s Dance.
