The campaign has been launch to mark what would have been Bowie's 70th birthday and the first anniversary of his death.
Paul Rodgers, the Head of BBC Radio 6 Music, said: "What better way for BBC Radio 6 Music to celebrate the life and legacy of one of music's most extraordinary artists than to reflect on some his best records. We're really looking forward to finding out which Bowie album is the most popular amongst 6 Music listeners and then listening to it together in Gideon Coe's show."
The record chosen is to be played in full by radio presenter Gideon Coe on the station on Monday January 9 between 9pm and midnight.
