RADIO SHOW OF THE WEEK.

Byline: - Fred Shuster

``RODNEY ON THE ROQ''

What: Longtime local scene fixture Rodney Bingenheimer is always a step ahead on imports and musical trends from across the pond. He features interviews and music.

Where: KROQ-FM (106.7).

When: Midnight Sundays.

Playlist: Coldplay, JJ72, Johnny Marr's Healers, Doves, Badly Drawn Boy, Placebo.

Quote: ``I think the show is popular partly because of the time slot. It's on very late Sundays, and it gives people a different type of playlist. Eventually, much of the stuff I introduce ends up on KROQ during the day. This gives people an early taste.''

Off the air: Due for release early next year is ``Mayor of the Sunset Strip,'' a documentary on Bingenheimer by George Hickenlooper that includes interviews with everyone from high school pals to David Bowie and Courtney Love. Bingenheimer hosts the latest incarnation of his glam- themed English Disco the third Friday of each month at Los Angeles club Fais-Do-Do. This Friday, rock band Gwen Mars appears.

Background: Born in San Jose and raised in Mountain View, Bingenheimer was Davy Jones' stand-in on TV's ``The Monkees.'' Actor Sal Mineo dubbed him ``the mayor of Sunset Strip.'' Bingenheimer opened his first English Disco in 1972. He started at KROQ more than 20 years ago.

Taking a stand: ``There's always so much exciting new music from the UK. I still check out the import stores all the time.''

You'll like this if: ... you like KCRW-FM's (89.9) ``Ground Zero'' at noon Saturdays.
