Switched On Audrey


Switched On Audrey

Switched On Audrey starting record collecting at age 8 when she received her first LP, The Beatles 1962-1966, which was given to her by her aunt. Ten years later she met Bomp Records' garage guru Greg Shaw and became fixated on '60s punk, British R&B, and psychedelic music. Soon after, she began spinning at the "Rave Up!" and then "Cavern Club" in Hollywood. It was there she met Domenic Priore and co-produced/wrote/and starred in It's Happening!, a '60s-styled go-go show in the style of Shindig and Ready Steady Go!  After the show’s six-year run, she moved to Europe where she became the resident DJ of the UP Club! in Frankfurt.

While in Rome, she helped organize the Danger!Diabolik, which featured a display of her sizeable Diabolik movie-poster collection.  Audrey doesn't stop at collecting records and memorabilia; she has a huge vintage clothing collection focusing on designer Rudi Gernreich, whom she hopes to open a museum for one day. After returning to California, she began producing another TV show, The Now Sound, featuring contemporary bands such as The Masonics, Peter, Bjorn, and John and The Soundtrack of Our Lives. Among Audrey’s most favorite things to do is DJ, but by far the most exciting was when director Roman Coppola asked her to spin at the premiere of his movie CQ at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. At Luxuria she hosts Pretty World, a Brazilian-based musical tour that mixes up the best Bossa Nova, Samba, Tropicalia, Jazz and other Latin delicacies—including any version of  “Summertime” she can find.
