"Waiting for the gift of sound and vision"

As this lyric fragment from David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" suggests, inspiration and creativity is, alas, a waiting game that occurs at odd times, inconvenient moments, and in strange places. Amidst all of the show prep for music released in 1959 (last week and this week), I suddenly found myself, following "the gift of sound and vision" by taking a deeper-than-usual dive into the music of David Bowie, who released a new "best of" compilation in 2014 that I sampled during this week's show.
