LuxuriaMusic DJ Profiles

 

DJ JDub (John Walsh)

 John Walsh (DJ JDub) - Outrage Radio – Thursdays 9-11 PM PT 


John has been running around in the underground music/club scene since his early teens in the Northern California Bay Area. He cut his teeth in radio during college where he dj’d for four years, was the loud rock director, and later music director of the school station. After moving to Los Angeles he worked in various music industry positions, prompting him to launch an online punk rock mail-order business. This eventually grew into a full time music distribution company that lasted for a decade. He also formed a record label (Uppercut Records) that released hard-hitting albums from wild and unruly rock n’ rollers such as The BellRays, The Goddamn Gentlemen, Simon Stokes, and The Flash Express. Outrage Radio is a show intent on blasting Garage, Punk, Rock, Soul, Heavy, Psych, and Alternative sounds. You will hear a lot of new music as well as older gems.

Wednesdays - 5 - 7 PM PT

Host Lee Joseph is a lifelong music fan, record collector, and sole force behind Dionysus Records, now in its' third decade.

Over Under Sideways Down reflects his wide scope of musical tastes, spanning decades, and is billed as a variety of shows, not a variety show. Each show is themed; from week-to-week you'll hear solid blocks of exotica, r&b, soul, doo-wop, garage, instro/surf, freakbeat, psych, prog, hard rock, rockabilly, punk, power-pop and more including shows that explore record label discographies and regional/international scenes. Lee also features special guests; past guests include Jello Biafra, DJ Bonebrake, Keith Morris, Robert Drasnin (RIP), members of The Pandoras and visual artists Hudson Marquez and William Stout.

Agent Kari

DJ Agent KariAgent Kari - K.A.O.S. A-Go-Go - Fridays 7-9 PM

Agent Kari plays music that serves as a soundtrack to the groovy ’60s lifestyle she’s created for herself with clothing, interior design & a psychedelic mindset. On her LuxuriaMusic show, she spins songs that fall under her personal definition of Go Go—upbeat music that makes her want to shake it up in a chaotic and colorful fashion. She loves to dance, and that passion has led her to discover many of her musical selections.

For the past eleven years, this host of K.A.O.S a Go-Go (Kari’s Audio Orbit Shindig) has traveled undercover to 1960s-themed parties in Europe, performing/go go dancing under the alias Mata Kari. She focuses on 60’s garage and psych, especially tracks with fuzzy guitar & crazy organ grooves; but also likes freakbeat, funky soul, trippy rock, sexy soundtracks & jazzy library music. She gets especially turned on if any of the above are sung in a foreign tongue!

Paul Kennedy

Playlists: https://sites.google.com/view/nightscapewithpaulkennedy

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.

Following that, she was bassist for San Pedro post-punk band, Peer Group, who were not well-known outside of San Pedro, but did once open for a 9-year old at the World Famous Whisky a Go-Go, as well as play in a few one-shot musical combos featuring Michael Quercio and Mike Watt. She also worked for seminal Los Angeles punk band, The Plugz, and for their label Fatima Records, and was an active scenester of the burgeoning L.A. Punk scene of the late 70s/early 80s. She made a brief name for herself for creating a line of band pins made entirely out of pills, which she pithily dubbed “Pill Pinz”. Lina also produced the very first large scale punk show at Los Angeles Harbor College, starring The Plugz, a show which turned out to be the official debut of The Minutemen. You’re welcome!
