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
that has a spacy, New Agey type ringtone. Also, Jonesy's new mic
is limp.

Songs included:
Pony Club-Stop
Hal-What A Lovely Dance
Millbrook Cathedral-Meet In The Field

fashion show for ****Agent Provocateur*

Jukebox. Later, Jonesy drove through a stop sign and the cops
stopped him. He was honest and said he just wasn't paying
attention and they let him go with a warning

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!!!

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

Heeeeeerreesss Stevie

The Man with the plan was back Wednesday.

Today we had a interesting if one sided conversation with Sir Iggworth of Pop, James Osterberg.

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
contrast to the "penetrating sunlight" in L.A.) He said that
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."

Songs included:

Dandy Warhols-Everyone Is Totally Insane
Stooges-No Fun
Mick Ronson-Only After Dark
Sparks-This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both of Us
Hedwig & The Angry Inch-Tear Me Down
Clash-Clash City Rockers
Caesars -Spirit
Raveonettes-Ode to L.A.

Linda Ramone

Jonesy's back!! Spent his vacation driving up the coast to San
Francisco. Looked at houses in Carmel, but can't afford one on his
"miniscule" salary. Linda Ramone called in re the screening of

it all bloke.
