Music Director / Host, "Electro Lounge" & "Route 66"

David Luckin joined WJCT as a development producer in 2000, bringing with him 19 years’ experience as a Jacksonville news photographer and a lifelong passion for music. The New York native hosted his first local music program at Gainesville’s NPR affiliate while earning his degree at the University of Florida.

Shortly after joining WJCT, his drive to deejay resurfaced, and he conceived and developed "NightFlight," a weekly one-hour program that showcased the laid-back sounds of “downtempo” and “chillout.” Luckin’s program immediately developed an audience of loyal listeners. Within three years, he was on the air two hours a night, five nights a week with "Electro Lounge," a popular program of “music without walls” that attracts listeners around the world.

Married with two children, Luckin also enjoys films, vintage cars and the beach.

STD’s are not new, in fact US Army medical records dating back to the Revolutionary War show just how significant soldier losses were due to venereal diseases. The incidents of VD during the Civil War over a two-year period show just how prevalent the problem was. The Union Army documented 100,000 cases of gonorrhea. During World War I, the Army lost 7 million person-days and discharged more than 10,000 men because they were sick from STDs. Once Penicillin was available in the mid-1940s, such infections were treatable.

In an interview in June's Lucky Magazine, Christina Hendricks Of 'Mad Men' says she has a good deal in common with her character Joan Hollaway, at least when it comes to clothes.

Hendricks says that she's taken a page out her character's book by never dressing down when her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend, is around. She says about wearing sweat pants around the house, "I can't do that to my husband, not after just three years of marriage."

Dita Von Teese

The Toronto Star reports that burlesque icon and model Dita Von Teese is selling one of her classic cars, a fully-restored 1939 Packard 120 sedan.

Unfortunately, she is not offered with the car.

The bidding has reached $7,150, which is below the reserve price for the car, so you still have time to be the lucky winner of this classic automobile.
