Charlie's Angel movie.. No, Jonesy is not really celibate. That
was a gag.

Brothers and Sisters ..

Wayne Kramer, Steve Jones, Michael Davis @ Jonesy's Jukebox Indie 103.1 - September 14, 2005
Photographed by Margaret Saadi Kramer

Its the MC5

Couple of songs


Jonesy might auction off the Ziploc baggie he uses to keep the
screen for his microphone clean. He's been using the same baggie
so long, it getting kinda dirty itself. He also uses the same pot
scrubbers and dish towels too long "when you could just go out and
buy 10 new ones for $1." "You need a woman." sighs Mr. S. Jonesy
acts like he didn't hear that "What?" "Well, see, that's why you
need a woman to tell you to go out and buy new pot scrubbers."
"I've been getting in touch with my feminine side," Jonesy adds.
"Well, that's another subject entirely," sez Mr.S.

Guests: MC5. Talked about meeting Sun Ra, how corporate radio is
like McDonalds and how the Creation used to have a midget with a
tommy gun come out of the drumkit at the end of their set. Played
"American Ruse" and "Shakin' Street" in-studio. They are playing
at Royce Hall Saturday night with the Sun Ra Orchestra & at Amoeba
Friday night. **MC5*

... and then the power went out in a large section of the SFV and some of LA.

Steve wanted to make sure that he was safe on his way home :-)

Power cut

Jonesy pulled his groin playing soccer this weekend & pondered its
exact defintion. At about 1 o' clock the traffic lights &
electricity in general went out all over L.A. Mr. S. made an
announcement, telling drivers to stay calm. Jonesy sang a little
ditty, extolling stay calm sentiments with "we're all going to
die" soundbites and "smash your car into the guy in front of you."
Song of the day- "When The Lights Go Down" by Journey.

Friday, September 09, 2005

London is & how Paul lives only a few doors down from where he
grew up. Steve and Paul have been friends since they were 10. They
used to pass each other on the street walking to different
schools. (Paul was in the "smart "class, Steve was in the "dunce"
class.)There will be a celebrity-studded 50th birthday party for
Jonesy this weekend at a secret location. Chrissie Hynde will be
there, and (maybe) John Lydon?? Steve and Paul talked about the

John Peel TK3K

Sadly a great John Peel related site has had to shut down.

Mr. Shovel read a letter from Los Angeles Magazine saying that
they've named Jonesy DJ of the Year & inviting him (& a guest) to
a party. Mr. S hinted that he wants to be the guest, but Jonesy
wants "a bird in a long gown" instead. Jonesy has a new cell phone

is limp.

Billy Corgan

Billy's playing at the Henry Fonda Last night and tonight.
Jonesy is seeing the 50 train coming along pretty quick i think.

They also talked about embarrassing photos and Steve thought his from the LongHair days
were bad. Maybe i should scan the picture that they had in Q magazine they have of his face all shiny and smooth. :-)

Billy Corgan

Guest: Billy Corgan. Billy diagnosed the cause of Jonesy's itchy
legs-mites!! "I had mites twice," sez Billy, "happens from
sleeping in bad hotels and on strange girls' floors." Jonesy
swears he's done neither lately. Lotsa talk about past lives,
religion, the Bible, death, flying, Chicago, scientists,
holograms, girls with bubble butts, etc. Jonesy wants to retire to
his own island with a Polynesian girl, ala Marlon Brando. Jonesy
got laid a lot in the '80s when he had long hair and rode a
motorcycle. Billy mentioned the book /Holographic Universe/ by
Michael Talbot (Link:***Holographic Universe

played "Now (& Then)" from his new CD "The Future Embrace" on
acoustic guitar in the studio. "Sounds like America!" sez Jonesy.
"That's not good," sez Billy. "No,no!" Jonesy backtracks, "I mean
Bread." "That's even worse!!" sez Billy. Billy's favorite guitar
players are Eddie Van Halen and Tony Iommi. Today is Mr. Shovel's
42nd birthday!!!

Monday, July 11, 2005

Steve finally confronted his neighbor who plays the loud,
excessive sub-woofer music. He'd previously delivered a letter to
their house (how polite!!), but over the weekend he walked over
the house (through the bushes!!) The neighbor sees him, goes "Oh,
it's you" and said he'd tone down the music. Steve is the
"quietest" neighbor one could have. Near the end of the show,
Steve suddenly developed a case of itchy legs and people called in
to diagnose the cause. (Was it a delayed reaction to bugs in the
bushes or were their mosquitoes in the studio?)

Songs included:

Black Brothers-Give Me Love
UFO-Lights Out
Jam-English Rose
Bad Brains-Banned in DC
Bernard Cribbins-Gossip Calypso

Iggy Pop

Iggy Pop called in from Miami. It's changed a lot since he first
visited there, "walking around in his leather outfit talking to
old Jewish cabdrivers." Iggy likes the "diffused light" in FL (in

Jonesy is the loudest natural guitar player he's ever heard. "Give
a bunch of guitar players the same guitar and the same Marshall
stacks, Jonesy will be the loudest."

The Doves

porn star****.
Guests: The Doves

Monday, June 13, 2005

Jenny Lens Punk Pix Joe Sib rules! I will miss Henry Rollins more than words can say. He brought so much into my life with his brilliant rants and musical choices. Yeah, they've got that Brit guy during the day whom I never miss. I wish they archived shows like Little Stevie, so you can listen over and over and avoid the crap they play over and over and over 90% of the time.

This site ( etc ) is extraordinary.

Pictures of a much smaller Steve :-)

Aquabats today

On The Mighty Mighty Morning show !!! Charge

Yesterday was a bad driving day for Jonesy. He had a tire that
looked like it was slashed,then some inconsiderate guy in a Jaguar
parked to close to him in the Whole Foods parking lot and he had
to struggle to get back in his car. L.A. drivers have no courtesy.
"It's hard living in modern society," sez Mr. S., who added
motorists on Sunset Strip yesterday were "driving like asteriods
were coming." Nobody in L.A. uses turn signals, sez Steve. They
should hire people just to give tickets to people who don't use
turn signals." "They already have those," sez Mr.S., "they're
called police officiers." "No, just to give tickets to the people
w/o turn signals. They'd make a fortune."

Monday, June 06, 2005

Jonesy looks like a "swashbuckler" today, complete with 'stache.
Mr. S. has a new cell phone w/ the same service provider as
Jonesy, but his phone still won't work in the studio. Steve sang
some impromptu songs about "bad guys" such as Jack The Ripper and
Gengis Cohen (Kahn)"

Jonesy and the Secret Machines

For you to trip out on? (Laughing) I heard you guys this afternoon on Jonesy’s Jukebox
Brandon: We played “Nowhere Again”. We’ve never done that before, ever. It was a total surprise.
Ben: First of all, it was a surprise that it was Steve Jones who was interviewing us.

"Brandon: Steve handed us a guitar and said, “Here – can you play it?” You can’t really say no, you know? He prefaced it with like, “There’s a lot of bands that come in here that can’t even play their own music and songs.” And it’s like, all right!"

Friday, June 03, 2005

John Waite

Jonesy had a dream last night that he was smoking cigarettes
again. It freaked him out. Mr. Shovel, doing an iffy Freud
impersonation, (***"What are you, Dr. Strangelove?",****** sez
Jonesy******), *** questions the meaning of the dream. He suggests
that Dr. Freud would say the cigarettes are a stand-in for another
similiarly shaped object. "Are you being offensive?" sez Jonesy.

Guest: John Waite

John has just moved to Santa Monica from NY and has a new album
coming out. Jonesy, John and John's guitar player Jimmy do
in-studio versions of "Dock of The Bay", "The Young Ones" and
"Missing You." We learn that after the Professionals tour of
America, their bodyguard threatened to kill Jonesy, so Jonesy
stayed in New York-for a couple years!

It seems Steve has changed his mind about the sex thing. "I
thought you weren't interested in sex," sez Mr. Shovel. "You
slipped. You're not evolved anymore." "I'm still more evolved than
you." sez Steve. Jonesy "is not the animal he used to be" and
girls turn into friends because I don't make a move." "I'm a lame
old sod," he sez.

Popmatters interview

Interview ...

PM: Do you actually like Journey? [Journey gets airtime on Jonesy's Jukebox]

SJ: Yeah, Journey's great. Back then I couldn't like it because it wasn't cool. When you get older, you just appreciate a good song, whether you're wearing flares or bondage pants. I love catchy pop rock. You can't knock a good song. But my first day, if I would have played Journey, I think I would have buried myself. I had to ease into that stuff.

Tuesday, May 24, 2005

Jonesy has evolved, he says, and is no longer that interested in
sex, he sez,cuz in the past he had lots of meaningless sex and can
now view it as a humorous thing. However, Mr. Shovel is still his
"honey." "I'm circumcised," Jonesy tells him. :Why do people have
sex? Steve asks,"Got to be for that last 4 seconds. Why else would
you do it. I mean, maybe not for birds, but for blokes.."

When Jonesy was driving home last night, he saw Ronald Vaughn,
Rodney Bingemheimer's "Spaceman" friend from Mayor of the Sunset
Strip sleeping by a bus stop in Beverly Hills. "I met him at a
party in the '80s and he was normal," sez Jonesy. He then wondered
what makes people "go crazy." Saw a documentary about Al Green

Malcolm McLaren was the Guest today.
" I have STUFF to sell..."

Maybe the Lydon guest appearance isnt so far off.

Malcolm McLaren

Guest:Malcolm McLaren. Steve and Malcolm see each other for the
first time in 10 years. "Where's my money?" sez Steve as his
opening shot. Jonesy and Malcolm had a good time during the
interview w/ both of 'em laughing a lot, esp. Malcolm with that
jovial/creepy laugh of his. Malcolm told a story about how invited
John to audition for the Pistols. Vivenne (Westwood) told Malcolm
"There's this really handsome bloke named John who hangs out at
the shop. You should get him to be the singer." So, Malcolm
auditions John (you know the story, John sings "I'm 18" in front
of the jukebox at the Roebuck Pub.) and he's in the band. When
Malcolm sees Vivenne again, she goes "No!!! That was the wrong
John!!" The John she was referring to was John Simon Ritchie (Sid
Vicious). "You're going to have trouble with that one!" predicted
Vivenne. Malcolm played songs by some of his current "bands."
Chinese all-girl band called Wild Strawberries and a "hacker" song
(sound provided via old computers) by a guy from Chicago that was
pretty good. He is also producing the film version of "Fast Food

Rock to Jock

OC Register

Michael Steele, Indie 103.1 program director, says the goal is to provide listeners with something fresh.

"Everything about Los Angeles and Orange County radio is so slick and produced, and that's great - I worked at KISS-FM and had Rick Dees and that's the ultimately slick radio," Steele says. "And those stations do really well.

"But when I was designing Indie, I knew that to compete, I had to put something on the radio that was radically different."

So he signed Jones to host a midday show, on which he meanders in a Cockney accent through his vast store of rock memories - many of them involving guitars and amplifiers he's nicked off other bands.

Most days he interviews fellow musicians about everything from English soccer to girlfriends they've shared, and plays whatever strikes his fancy, often struggling to recall song titles at the end of sets.

The show started in a haphazard fashion today, with Jonesy still
running down the hallway as Mr. S. manned the mic.Jonesy is not in
a relationship because "he doesn't want to get screamed at when he
looks at other birds." Per future relationships/marriage "that
door ain't closed." Steve also went into his spiel about how
priests should get married (or at least have the services of
hookers.) Men are always looking at birds other than their
girlfriend, but "Birds don't want to be with every bloke."
"Someday you'll find the right woman," Mr. Shovel assures Jonesy.

Songs included:

Altered Images-Happy Birthday
Heavy Metal Kids-Hang On
Mazzy Star-Fade Into You
"Some guy sang a song"
Eels-Railroad Man
Super Groupies-Low Blue Flame

guest: Tony Wilson

Guest: Tony Wilson. Tony inspired the movie "24 Hour Party
People." A producer,promoter and radio personality in England, he
booked the Pistols on their infamous Bill Grundy TV show
appearance. We learn that he had to cover up Siouxsie's swastika
armband with gaffers tape. He was very disappointed in the fact
that Jonesy likes Boston! Played a song by some young Brit rap
group he's promoting and Jonesy had to stop the song because it
had the f word in it! (Sorry RSPCA!!) Jonesy really wants Cliff
Richard as a guest on the show. "What did you do in New York?"
Tony asked as he interviewed Steve about his post-Pistols life.
"Lived with a hooker and did heroin," Jonesy responded. "She was a
nice girl." Jonesy hurt his back from "spinning" (the trendy
exercise) too much.

Chelsea won!! Jonesy got back in one piece from playing w/ Camp
Freddy in Vegas. Tone Loc & Annabella Lwin joined 'em onstage. He
really has to lose weight cuz he didn't get any action. One day in
Vegas was enough for him. He lost $600 gambling & rode down a
water "Tunnel.". Saw Bon Jovi and said they were "disappointingly
dull." Asked Mr. Shovel what it would take to make him his
"honey." ("Yes, we're back to that. C'mon, we're all whores,"
Jonesy said, "Everyone has a price.") Mr. Shovel had a great time
at Coachella. Says the Pistols should headline there next year.

Jonesy learn? "I learned I get hungry listening to people speak

write in pope

No write-in win for Jonesy as Pope.The new pope had to choose a
