LuxuriaMusic offers a meticulously curated mixture of musical genres that make up the station’s eclectic alchemy. Since its inception, LuxuriaMusic’s earliest and most avid adopters have been people who possess a high level of pop-culture consciousness, especially about ’50s-through ’70s music and entertainment. Such folks also form the basis of the station’s air staff: a diverse, super-knowledgeable group of music enthusiasts and professionals who curate the various genres that comprise LuxuriaMusic’s eclectic alchemy. Surf Music, Bossa Nova, Exotica, Space-Age Bachelor Pad, Jazz, Soft-Psych, Sunshine Pop, Wall of Sound, Latin, Go-Go, and Film & TV music of the past 50 years are expertly distilled and blended in order to concoct the “highly intoxicating and sometimes hallucinatory” LuxuriaMusic Sound.

Somehow, in this context, it all makes sense.
