Justin Strauss, Worldwide FM


I'm hosting a Worldwide FM show with NYC DJ/production legend and feet-on-the-ground sweetheart Justin Strauss tomorrow 1:00-3:00pm GMT.

On the chitchat menu: the Mudd Club, the Ritz, Area, friendships with Ivan Baker / François Kevorkian / Larry Levan / Keith Haring, the dark days and nights of the mid/late 1980s and 1990s, the club kids era of Tunnel and Limelight, and staying true to one's musical and social values in a hectically-commercial world.

On the music menu: 40 years of recordings that caused a stir in NYC.

Tune in live at Worldwide FM and catch up at wrldwd.fm/tlawrence2 x

Part II: www.mediapolisjournal.com/2018/08/the-mediapolis-qa-tim-lawrence-part-two/

I haven’t had a chance to listen yet but the feedback on Ray’s FB page was very up:
