Paul Kennedy

Paul KennedyPaul Kennedy - Nightscape - Wednesday -  3 - 5 PM PT

Paul Kennedy has been exposed to a variety of music since his childhood. His father was a jazz musician and a music teacher, so it was hard not to be interested in music. Paul's first experience with a turntable was at about age 8, spinning The Grand Canyon Suite on the family record player. Later, as a teenager, his interests moved to pop 60s music. The first record he bought was Between The Buttons by The Rolling Stones. In 1969, after joining the Navy, Paul was stationed in the Bay Area, where he took in concerts at the Fillmore West, Winterland, and The Family Dog.

Since then Paul has followed his career in computers around the country, living in the east coast and the Midwest, eventually settling into the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. Fortunately, the day job allows him to continue rummaging through record shops, estate sales, and thrift stores for records.

When Paul learned about Luxuriamusic, he became an avid fan immediately, opening up a whole new world of music for him. When Luxuriamusic left the Internet, Paul started up SounDelicious on Live365 to, in a very small way, try to make up for the vacuum left by Luxuriamusic's departure. Of course, there was no way to make up that. Fortunately, Luxuriamusic came back online. In 2005, Paul welcomed the opportunity to host Nightscape.

 

  • Philosophy of my radio show: Breaking away from the routine of the day.
  • Five artists LuxuriaMusic listeners will hear on my show: Ray Bryant, Gerardo Frisina, Lettuce, Ramsey Lewis, and Sarah Vaughn
  • To derive the maximum pleasure from my radio show: Just tune in and listen; it's just that easy. And, of course, a refreshing beverage won't hurt either. Feel free to join me in the chat room, too.
  • When I'm not DJing I can be found: Shopping for records, putting together compilation CDs for friends, shopping surplus and thrift stores, compiling my best-movies-ever list, and queuing up stacks of records on my refurbished 70's vintage record player.
  • The secret superpower I possess: Ability to suspend time while searching through record bins.
