Tuned in at 0102 UTC via NA5B near D.C. when I heard the loud male-voiced ID saying "You're tuned to Blackstar Radio." Strong signal with little noise or fading.

All the songs so far are from that final Bowie album with the "Blackstar" title.

0102 UTC: "Where Are We Now?"
0106 UTC: "I Can't Give Everything Away."
0112 UTC: Quick "Blackstar Radio" ID into "I'd Rather Be High (Venetian Mix)." (This song's actually from "The Next Day" album, but I'm not picky.)
0115 UTC: "Lazarus" ... one of my favorites from that final album! Now listening via the Northern Utah SDR, where the signal's fair but noisy!
0122 UTC: ID in distorted male voice: "You're listening to Blackstar Radio," then "So She," which comes from "The Next Day" album.
0128 UTC: Quick recorded ID into "Valentine's Day" from "The Next Day" album.
0131 UTC: "No Plan."

I forgot to log this last night!  SIO 444 onto the isthmus at 0107Z, after a few minutes of struggle trying to get the exact frequency right.  Twiddled the dial with increasing exasperation until aha! thing suddenly clarified into some rather nice music. :)  Thanks for the show!
