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.

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.."

McLaren

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
Nation."

Rock to Jock

OC Register
Article

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.
