He writes about music for Record Collector, the Hollywood Reporter and Shindig!Being a LuxuriaMusic DJ is just the icing on the cake.

Philosophy of my radio show: Bringing the world into my record room for an array of rarities, hidden gems and mono minutiae.
Five artists LuxuriaMusic listeners will hear on my show: Grapefruit, Dion & The Wanderers, Gary Lewis, the Cyrkle & the Mindbenders
To derive maximum pleasure from my radio show: Listen closely, very closely.
When I’m not DJing I can be found: Putting together tours for the Monkees, writing about music and producing reissues.
Secret superpower I possess: Locating the LP you have been searching for your entire life... in Mono!
