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, dining, laughing, being mommy… living life to the fullest.

Secret superpower I possess: The Stones spontaneously come on the sound system whenever I walk into a room.
