Strike

Strike - The Kitsch Niche -  Sundays 8 - 11 pm PST

Lately, numerous hipster blogs have been reporting bizarre incidents that always occur at the same time every Sunday night. Who is this mysterious “Strike”? Where is he from? What does he want?

Is he trying to send us a message from beyond the grave? Does he offer us an extraterrestrial answer to world peace through code? One can only guess, but this much is known: We must be alert and vigilant, and continue to monitor his LuxuriaMusic radio show Kitsch Niche week in and week out. Perhaps the answer is already there, waiting to be unearthed.

Dave Stuckey

Dave StuckeyDave Stuckey - The Sixty Minute Clambake
deLUX Premium Content

Dave Stuckey hates talking about himself in the third person. Nevertheless, the host of “The Sixty Minute Clambake” has been playing music in and around Los Angeles (& around the globe) going on 25 years now in various aggregations, including The Dave & Deke Combo, The Lucky Stars, The Bonebrake Syncopators, Sugarballs & His 18 Wheelers … and with his own current jazz outfit, Dave Stuckey & The Hot House Gang.

In addition he, like many others here at Luxuria, suffers from that chronic, well-known condition variously referred to as Shellac Syndrome, Hi-Fi-itis and Vinyl Vapors. There is, apparently, no known cure.

In this, his first return to the airwaves...er...ether... er...internet tubes...since the ancient, halcyon days of The Cool & The Crazy on KCRW, Stuckey hopes to likewise infect listeners with the rambunctious yet exotic strains of pre-bop jazz - when it was cool to play hot… and the needle could literally jump out of the groove. At least that’s what he told me.

Ron Sures

Ron Sures - Happy to Know You - Fridays at 5-7 pm Pacific/8-10 pm Eastern

Ron Sures has been a musician for 91% of his life, and has been composing music for film and television for over 20 years.

Among more recent projects, Sures has composed the scores for the TV series Slings & Arrows (for the Sundance Channel), and The Eleventh Hour, for which he won a Gemini award. He loves (and loves to play) every kind of music that was ever invented.
 

John T

John T. – Thrifting for Tunes – Sundays 6-7 PM PT/9-10 PM ET

Montreal-based writer John Trivisonno's LuxuriaMusic gig is the result of a happy accident stemming from a life-long fascination with mid-20th century Polynesian Pop/Tiki culture (a recently unearthed Super 8mm film showing him goofin' around at a luau at the Miami Beach Hawaiian Isle Hotel in the mid-60s proves it!).
