  • Philosophy of my show: An upbeat music show that strives for the urgency and ‘fun’ atmosphere of classic Sixties Top-40 radio. Nothing serious. Nothing too long. Keep moving.
  • Five artists Luxuria listeners will hear on my show: Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band, Miracles, Lesley Gore.
  • To derive maximum pleasure from my radio show: Turn it up.
  • When I’m not DJing I can be found: assembling show playlists.
  • The secret superpower I possess: Effectively convincing people that I am not show producer Gene Sculatti.
