David Luckin

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.
