10th Annual LuxuriaMusic BEATLES DAY

On Wednesday, December 8, 2010, come celebrate the music of John, Paul, George, Ringo, Billy, Stu, & Pete aka THE BEATLES with DJ’s Steve Stanley, Andrew SandovalHowie Pyro, Strike, Jim Laspesa, Angel Baby, Dr. Nod and Luxotron. That’s right, it’s LuxuriaMusic’s 10th Annual Tribute to THE BEATLES!

The Encyclopedia of Sound... the Grand Finale!!!


A tuneful termination, a cacophonous conclusion, a sweet-sounding cessation, a discordant denouement...

John T & Tothar's year-long "Encyclopedia of Sound" project finally comes to an end this Sunday, December 19... beginning at 6 pm pacific/9 pm eastern on Thrifting for Tunes, and continuing at 7 pm pacific/10 pm eastern on The Beyondophonic Action Hour... on, of course!

Tune in for two solid hours of music, taking us through the letters W, X, Y, and Z (that's Zee in Tothar's case, Zed for John T!) in the Encyclopedia of Sound... from Wall of Voodoo and Hugo Winterhalter to Helmut Zacharias and The Zero Zero Seven Band... with plenty more musical madness in between!

LuxuriaMusic is BACK!! No Earhole is Safe!!


To all our great friends and devoted listeners:

LuxuriaMusic has resolved its technical issues, and is back on the air!

As you can imagine, being offline for two days has brought our need to consistently raise funds front and center.  Some of our listeners have already generously responded with either one-time or recurring donations, and we thank you very much!  If you would like to do the same, it's as easy as clicking on the Donate link just above.

The LuxuriaMusic staff is a tight knit family of friends, and as you may already know, we're thrilled to call many of our listeners family too.  We can not thank you all enough for all the support you've offered us!

Thank you very much again!

Chicago GOLD calling!


Programming Note:  Due to technical issues which are now resolved, this broadcast will be repeated this weekend.

This Saturday!
Answer THE CRYSTAL TELEPHONE with DJ Rotary Rachel. This week's ring-a-ding is special edition featuring three hours of Chicago 1960s rock, including jingles, groovy windy city rarities, and a sit-down with guitarist Carl Giammarese of the fabulous Buckinghams! Join Rotary Rachel and special co-host, author and Chicago music historian Stu Shea right here, on 6-9 pacific, 8-11 central time!

Where'd that Rotary Rachel go??

Why, back to Chicago for a couple of weeks!  Gathering energies, rolling some Chicago Gold all for YOU in upcoming weeks!

"But what about THIS weekend," you shriek?  "I needs mah Crystal Telephone!"

FEAR NOT!  The skillful technicians at Luxuria are here to help with an encore of DJ Rotary Rachel's utterly faboo in-studio interview with Frank Conniff ("TV's Frank" of Mystery Science Theater 3000).  If you missed it, or jes' don't shine to newfangled hoopajoobs like "podcasts," don't worry.

Just tune in at Rachel's usual time, 6-9 pm PT Saturday (9 pm - Midnight ET).  We promise, even though the show is old, the chat will be brand new!

Where in the Realm is Rotary Rachel?

Ah, glad you asked!  The host of The Crystal Telephone, DJ Rotary Rachel, is still in Chicago doing intense field investigations of its landline communications network (or POTS, in industry lingo).
In the mean (and it is, to be sure, QUITE mean) time, why not use this opportunity to catch up with Rachel's show from September 25th, with the hysterical comedian Blaine Capatch as her very special guest?
Simply tune to Luxuria at Rachel's regular time, 6 pm PT this very evening, and chat5 like your funny bone depends on it... because, in fact, it just very well might!

Rachel returns to Luxuria LIVE on October 23rd!  Don't miss it!

Get natural this evening with West Coast Fog radio!

Laid back fuzzers, Inland Empire Hobbit rock, California raga...
Bobby Beausoleil, Aashish Khan, Grateful Dead, Farm Band...

Tonight we're live again from 7-9 PST!
Repeats are soooo last week!

"Good Time" DJ Erik Bluhm promises you'll be glued to your tiny computer speakers for the full two hours, hyp-motized by the sounds of the Twiggs, Phananganang, Strawberry Window, the Painted Ship, the New Age, the Grateful Dead, Country Weather, and all your fave west coast bead-wearers!
