 Lina Lecaro - Hot Licks with Lina - Sundays, 2-4pm, PT 

Born and bred in Los Angeles, Lina Lecaro has been a music journalist for over two decades and a curator/DJ in the clubs for almost as long. She is the nightlife columnist (#LinaInLA) and music critic at LA Weekly, and her work can be seen in Noisy/Vice, Billboard, Yahoo, Playboy, Paper, Rollingstone.com, Paste, Consequence of Sound, Flavorwire, Buzzbands, Thrillist and LAist, to name just a few. She has written two books, “Los Angeles’ Best Dive Bars- Drinking and Diving in the City of Angels” and “Never Mind the Rules- An Alternative Dating Guide for Girls Who Wanna Rock.” She holds a BA in Journalism from CSUN and lives in Los Feliz, California with li’l rocker daughter Charlotte. She is also a nightlife and media maven tour guide at Air BnB, wherein she provides tours (#ExcessInTheCity) to LA’s best after dark fun for a nominal fee. She is a 70’s pop culture obsessive who collects vintage clothing, platforms, Rolling Stones (her favorite band) stuff and memorabilia. She’s a rock chick with a goth girl heart and a disco spirit.
Philosophy of my radio show: A sexy hot mess of rock, punk, glam, new wave, soul, funk, pop and everything in between from the 70s to present. Regular in studio guests talk music, LA nightlife and pop culture. Five artists LuxuriaMusic listeners will hear on my show: Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, The Runaways, Siouxsie and the Banshees. 


To derive maximum pleasure from my radio show: Don’t be a snob! Have an open mind about music and let it take you back and feel things from when it came. 


When I’m not DJing I can be found: Writing, reading, taking photos, dancing, singing, dating, dining, laughing, being mommy… living life to the fullest. 


Secret superpower I possess: My kisses have healing properties.
