I First Heard David Bowie on WPRO Providence in early 1973

I woke up this morning to the sad news that David Bowie passed away at age 67.  I thought back to the first time I heard his music.  It was early 1973 as I was a student at the University of Rhode Island and lived in the Scarborough Beach area of Narragansett.  In Rhode Island everybody listened to WPRO as Salty Brine was the morning DJ.  I don't think it was during the morning, but I heard Space Oddity by David Bowie on WPRO, the station that reaches the beaches.
