Preparing a show starts days, even weeks in advance of its presentation on Monday night. A member of our “listening family” suggested that an explanation of my “mixology and presentation strategy” might create a more pleasurable experience and suggestion opportunities. So, here goes……….. CREATING A THEME Each week a “top-line” theme is introduced. Past theme examples include; Dancing (Go Feet), Best Bands You Rarely Hear, Fusion, Don’ts, Frolicking in Lugubrium, Flower Power, Sprout, Ladies Night (our beloved 51%), Spacemen, Elvis Genesis, Time and more. I like to choose themes which mix time periods and genres of quality music that keeps listeners guessing and entertained. Would you like to suggest a theme? - Shout-Out !! CREATING A FUN MIX THAT FITS THE THEME I really try to turn listeners on to music that is rarely heard, and in mixes they have never heard before. Opera actually segues nicely after Frank Zappa's "Eat That Question" !!! Not the whole opera of course, but a well-chosen aria with incredible mezzo soprano and soprano voices that blend wonderfully. My hope is to play music that will be intriguing and enjoyable for any listener who wants to hear familiar and unfamiliar music of past and present. Any genre could be represented in Lucien's World - from Zappa to Opera - from the 1920s to present. If it sounds good, it is good. The music and mix may seem eclectic and unpredictable at times, but, hopefully, always a fun learning and listening experience. More Music – Less Talk. My wife and friends keep me in check.

SHAKIN’ UP THE 4-HOUR SHOW I like to start off with the higher energy music in the first hour, bring the energy level down gradually in the second hour and chill it out in the final hours. However there may be exceptions at times. For example, an acoustic based theme would be chill throughout the night. Like to shake-up your Monday night fiesta or BBQ? Shout-Out !! IMPROV @ LUCIEN’S WORLD Life in Estero Bay can be mind-stimulating, perplexing, educational, unpredictable, explosive, mellow, - and most of all, lots of fun. Lucien’s World tries to capture these and many other adjectives that demonstrates the flavor our community. In that spirit, you can expect improvisational surprises that might include Guest DJ’s, stand-up comedy routines, playful music, silly music – and, oh yes, a solid injection of my signature smart-ass sense of humor. Wanna hear something? Shout-Out !!
