Oral History of Indie 103.1



"Steve Jones: I was driving around and I stumbled across the station and all they were doing was playing punk music and there was no commercials and I'm thinking, what the hell is going on here? This is something, I've never heard anything like this and I didn't know what it was. I was excited about turning the radio on and not hearing the same old crap that you was hearing at that time, like every other station. That was it.

Then, I get a phone call from this guy, Terry Anzaldo, who met me when I was signed to Maverick with my band called Neurotic Outsiders. He was the radio promotion guy. He called me and said, "Jonesy, have you heard of this new station?"
I'm like, "Yeah, it's great. What about it?" He goes, "Well, this guy wants to see if you want to get involved in it." I'm like, "I'm in, I want to be a DJ." It had just come out of my mouth. I never thought about it prior to that. The guy was Michael Steele, obviously.

Him and Shovel came over to my house. I was laid up in bed. I had back surgery and it was a nightmare and they come over and we talked about it. I said, the only stipulation that I want to put forward is that you let me play what I want to play and say what I want to say. They said okay, which is pretty much unheard of. I don't even know if they wanted me to be a DJ. I put it forward to them first before they could finish what they wanted to say to me, you know."

AV Club : Steve Jones Interrview

June 13th 2014

Steve Jones interview on AV Club LINK

"Steve Jones talks about acting, Sex Pistols, and life’s miscellanea"

"Steve Jones has tackled a number of endeavors over the course of his career, including writing and recording music, hosting a radio show (Jonesy’s Jukebox), and even a bit of acting."

More talk in comments about Indie and Steve's show than the article.I think i could pull out all the stories he mentions from the show recordings to illustrate them.

Thanks to Annie;


“Just thanking everyone who came along for the ride—it was a blast,” says STEVE JONES who recently (3/31/13) ended his successful run of his Sunday night weekly radio show “Jonesy’s Jukebox” on Los Angeles radio station KROQ FM (it began 10/10/10). The Sex Pistols’ co-founder/guitarist and pop culture icon adds that it was time to move on so he could pursue his growing film/TV career; work on a new Sex Pistols release of archival performance footage; and develop his own podcast (details TBA)."

Craig Ferguson interview in Playboy

PLAYBOY: What was the genesis of the puppets? Did you come to work one day and say, “Puppets are funny. Let’s do something with puppets”?
FERGUSON: That has a complicated backstory. It started with a buddy of mine named Steve Jones, the guitarist with the Sex Pistols. He had a radio show in Los Angeles called Jonesy’s Jukebox, and he’d play all these records from his collection. I was driving to work one day, listening to his show, and he was playing “The Lonely Goatherd” from The Sound of Music. [sings] “High on a hill was a lonely goatherd / Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo.” It just made me laugh. So I came to work and said, “You know what? I’m going to lip-synch that ‘Lonely Goatherd’ song on tonight’s show.” There were these hand puppets lying around the office, and we used them for the bit. That was kind of the beginning of it.

p.s. I will get round to updating playlists etc sometime soon.
