I'm delighted to welcome Re:Sleeves to our fledgling podcast network. Historian, explorer and storyteller Ben Waddington and I have been hatching this one since spring 2012 when we started sharing our mutual fascination with album sleeve design. About a month ago we resolved to make it a podcast, and last Friday we recorded the first of a planned fortnightly show. Our first discussion is focused on the evocative sleeve art for Bowie's three-LP 77-79 run of studio albums; Low, Heroes, and Lodger. We very much hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed recording it.
