Saturday live show

They are doing a show from the Helio store in Santa Monica then a concert 12-2 with The Ringers

Vinny Jones was there as well.

( he sounded a bit pissed off at the whole thing Monday. Too much like the organ grinders monkey )

( Steve was also at the Jet show Sunday night at Spaceland and got up and played some Faces songs with Chris Robinson singing and Slash up there as well. Eva Mendes was in the bus later :-) )

Hey .....

The stoner guy is gone from the "on the hour" station ids and intros.
Same way that Clash.PIxies and Ramones have slowly been replaced with more Smiths,REM etc.
When i was young it was all green fields and interesting music around here. Not so much any more.
P.S. Where has the Red Zone gone the last 3 weeks ?; I know Watusi Rodeo changed times ( bastards ) but it wasnt even mentioned and not on last Sunday .

(Update: Noon Steve seems to have done his own station id )

Guest Today ( Its Evan Dando )

I dont think they have said who yet. Why advertise something like that ?

Okay .. Shovel just said it is Evan Dando !!!

Kind of a strange one. They chatted, did some Dolls songs then coming back from a commercial break Dando was gone without a goodbye or Thanks.

The Slits

.. guest Today

"I'm your fairy godmother"
"Do you have a big Slits shirt .. for your uncle Steve"

Thursday, November 16, 2006

Time magazine and Steve

Look what Time magazine just called Jonesy !!

"One album was all they made, and probably all anyone could stand. Johnny Rotten, who had never sung before, had a gift for malice that he turned on the complacent England of the 70s. "God Save the Queen" dared voice the opinion that the monarch "ain't no human bein'." "Holidays in the Sun" mashed the Holocaust, the British economy and third world tourism into something offensive to hear ("I don't wanna holiday in the sun/ I wanna go to new Belsen/ I wanna see some/ History 'cause now I got a reasonable economy") and more offensive to ignore. Sid Vicious was a tragic sideshow, but credit guitarist Steve Jones, now one of America's best radio DJs, with making the songs explosive and catchy."

Wednesday, November 15, 2006

Thomas Dolby

guest today


"I’m writing from a hotel in Buena Park, CA (behind the ‘Orange Curtain’) getting ready for a radio spot tomorrow on Steve Jones’ show, yes! the former Sex Pistols guitarist. I played a charity football match against him once, and he was pretty good. Fortunately I won’t need to gush about how much I adored ‘Anarchy in the UK’ and ‘God Save The Queen’ as a teenager, as I met Rotten a few years ago and I did enough gushing for both of them."

Dolbys anti-kfed song "You're Karma hit my dogma" and his big 80's hit "I fart in elevators" :-)

Re The Clash

From the Guardian;

Steve Jones
Sex Pistols and Indie 103.1 FM, LA

London Calling

I loved the Clash. They were formed because of seeing the Pistols, so they were never seen as a threat. The Pistols were number one and the Clash were number two, even if that was perceived to have changed further along the road. I like the way they played because it was the same style as I'm from, the same school of glam. Mick Jones was coming from the same place I was. I went up to Birmingham and played with them. It was all good in my book.

'London Calling' was their 'Anarchy in the UK'. I thought it was a depressing song but significant, because of the lyrics. You know, history gets twisted by those who weren't there. The Clash, they were there, we were there. I've had Mick on the blower for the radio show. And Joe would leave me these weird messages when he was alive, at 5am, saying how I was his fave guitar player. They were great guys. I liked them.

"Showdown" ELO cover w. Steve

"Could Jeff Lynne listen in to hear me murder his song"

( you know 10/4 better be Billy Bragg somewhere near the bunker or the Studio ): aint gonna happen... Damn !!! He recorded Rollins IFC show instead.

" #273. 10-03-06 LA CA: ...........Tomorrow, good ol’ Billy Bragg will come to the studio and track some music for season three of my show. Looking forward to seeing him play, it’s been awhile. He’s a good guy.

Dispatches Update
#274. 10-04-06 LA CA: 2311 hrs. Billy Bragg was so damn good. I have not seen him in some time. I’ve always liked his work. I have seen him play over the years and it’s always great. Today he played two songs for the show. He did two takes each and they were flawless so I am sure we have great footage for the show. That made my week watching him play.

so 2 songs for IFC were more fun than some time on the 'box. Ah well.

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

Just for nothing;

1) Has the Jukebox ever started at "12 bells"
2) Has Rollins ( or his web person ) ever
posted the show listing "the next morning" :-)

or has bought earache medicine after indies commercials :-)

L.A. Times Magazine Top 100

L.A. Times August 13th
The West 100
Our list of the most powerful people in Southern California

Steve "Jonesy" Jones
Indie rock deejay; former Sex Pistol; 50, Benedict Canyon

His playlist on KDLD/KDLE-FM (103.1) is pretty much whatever the bloke feels like 'earing, which has made "Jonesy's Jukebox" not just one of L.A.'s hottest radio shows but the source of a cottage industry in downloads and CD sales. Virgin Megastores now feature "Jonesy's Picks" sections. At least three fledgling bands have gotten major label deals because Jonesy played them. And though the station doesn't match the ratings or signal strength of L.A.'s alt-rock big dog KROQ-FM (106.7), it's credited with forcing rivals to get edgier or step aside.

Cover week

I can almost forgive all of the Rolf Harris for Steve playing the Siouxsie cover of "Helter Skelter".

Live from the Bunker w/ The Buzzcocks

Bit of a cock up at the start someone cant read time.

First song live at 1.05 :-);
Talking, equipment setup and bagels first

Hold Tight (??)
Sell You Everything
Flat Pack Philosophy
Fiction Romance ( w/ Steve Jones)

(Or Bomb Shelter recording Studio recording for the Rollins IFC show )


I think this is the place that wouldnt let the Fall, or what was left of them at that point in the tour , record as they have a lot of really nice old mics that they were concerned about.

( torrent lossless @ http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=105694 )

Tuesday, July 25, 2006

oh dear , oh dear, oh dear

Vanilla Ice !!??!!?!?

( and then Rollins plays more Vanilla Ice later on his show as well as commenting on Jonesy playing him earlier ) ( Although Rollins saying he wants to punch Dr. Phil in the nutsack almost made up for it )

( Stuartmm : X are playing with the Rollins band starting Thursday
and instead of playing X ( i think Indie has never played any Rollins band so do not even think of asking for that ) we get 2 Vanilla Ice songs in a day . )

Monday, July 17, 2006

Big Takeover

Issue 58 of the greatest music magazine Big Takeover just arrived with an interesting story from Steves days dossing on the sofa at the editors New York apartment.
Buy a subscription; keep the magazine going. $20 for 4 issues , well worth it.

Tuesday, May 16, 2006


more shows like this and you may be losing me as a listener.
Jimmy Osmond
Alvin Stardust
Elton John
etc etc

And almost the, what seems like, 1000th playing of the
Q Lazarus song.

More guests me thinks or something to get back to the earlier more exciting days.
Too samey . I could almost write the script for a show now to fill the 2 hours and it probably wouldnt be noticeable.

And what is up with the sound effects. Lets make it annoying rather than interesting.

Jonesy used to get birds back in the day by saying he had coke.
Now he asks "Would you like to watch the History Channel?"

Wednesday, April 05, 2006


Steve plus a guest is a revelation, Steve without a guest seems to be getting a bit too "samey".

Start the show; weather; Do a song on guitar ( + burps/melodica/etc) , play 20 minutes of "stuff", "pay the Duke", 20 min more, quiz, "Duke" , 20 mins ; repeat; stop.
Fill in the songs from a roster of about 100 and thats the show without guests. :-)

The theme shows ( ie the day The Pistols were inducted ) are great but ...

Monday, April 03, 2006


Monday: Andrew WK
( Interesting but probably a bit too much harpsichord :-) )

Tuesday: Stewart Copeland
" Don't miss Stewart Copeland on Steve Jones Radio Show on Tuesday, April 4th (Steve was the guitar player of Sex Pistols). For the fans in Los Angeles area, he's usually on at noon on Indie 103.1, for those out of state, or out of the country, Indie has a live feed available at:"

He will also be performing onJonesy's Jukebox on Indie 103.1, 1pm - 2pm PST"

Thursday: Richard Butler
( got him to sing a bit of "Pretty in Pink".
It must scare the crap out of guests when at 1.30 Steves says "So what will we talk about now ? " :-) )

Friday: Frank Infante ( Blondie )

Saturday, April 01, 2006

Hands up...

.. anyone else who thought a "best of" show would be an edited together show of the best bits of the week rather than just a repeat of an entire show.

So its the show they think is "best" from the week.


Monday, March 27, 2006

Lydon rebroadcast on Friday Mar 17th

( .. you know its going to be edited ... even just for adverts and time .. maybe you should listen the first time ... and also over the airwaves or ..not asking for podcasts. Someone has to pay the bills... you have already missed 2 years of stuff like this.)

Looks like the Cook interview first hour then Lydon.
( I remember the Cook being over 1 hour so that will be edited. Need to go relisten)

By the end of the show and some time in the "thinking room" it may well be the McLaren interview first.

( this was offline for about 18 hours . )

Its the second hour of the Cook show from Aug 31st. It has the songs at least.

"Shoulda stolen their equipment," he decided after hearing 'em.

Rosanna Arquette

"MONDAY Mar 6: Jonesy welcomes actress ROSANNA ARQUETTE…tune in."

Another good show. Although as usual with the guests you get the feeling an interesting discussion is going on off air while Jonesy is just dying to play "Ernie, the fastest milkman in the West" again.or Leo Sayer . Or Alvin Stardust . or Cliff Richards .

"I regret not stealing the guitars". Talk about the RnR HOF decision. Steves real dad had phoned and left a mesage this morning. Chrissie Hynde, Joan Jett etc . Steve finding love.

LAist still listens to Indie and Jonesy.

Yes, Jonesy has cut his My Space list from almost 3,000 to 261 at
last count. "why did you do that?" asked Mr. Shovel, "Is it a
power thing?" "It's entertaining," sez Jonesy...and Jonesy plays
the Beatles!!! "You're Gonna Lose That Girl."

... the Beatles ???

"I think the Cult are playing tonight ... they're doing a benefit for some guy for some thing"

I have not really listened to the rebroadcasts for a while and the one today, at least, was a strange mixture of the initial broadcasts first and second hours. I wonder if they do that all of the time; trying to cherry pick a one hour show rather than re-edit a complete hour for rebroadcast in the morning.Interesting.

"We're not coming"

"We're not coming . We're not your monkey and so what ?"

"Were not going to the museum,
You can shove it, You can have it,
Were not going to the famous , the famous, famous
that blew out the candles on the last flame of the famous museum,

Were not going to roll over just yet, and take it up the .. behind,
You know what i am talking about.. Jimmy would be proud
coming to get you , roll over, let Johnny take over.

We don't want you, we're already famous without you telling us
that we are famous. Do you understand ?"
You're all idiots , you probably couldn't name one song on Never
Mind the Bollocks. You do understand dont you,Its not personal.

Idiots, Fools, Jacobites and mancheefrills"

Lyrics Steve Jones

Guest: Jah Wobble

Jah Wobble

Great stories , Great guest.

First PiL album was first recording.

Also tied together story that McLaren had told re Westwood wanting Vicious to be Pistols singer not Lydon. Jah talked about Sid being really dissappointed when he found out Lydon was singer. A lot of punk history casually being put together on Indie :-)
Just like when Scabies was in the first time and they started talking about the tour they were on and finally managed to sort out the stories.

PiL on American Bandstand. Jah Wobble in medical room for exhaustion. Casey Kasem looking like he was painted. Didnt know who he was. Though he was in danger of "molestation" . . "Let me get on the drums as i played the drums on that track anyway. John making everyone uncomfortable." Steve " the paid extras just didnt know what was going on"

Live acoustic "No,No,No"

Steve " i might come down tonight. Any crumpet ? "
Jah " Only me. Turn out the lights and its all the same "
Both laugh.

Live one of the folk songs they are doing on tour. ( "A blacksmith courted me" )

I have slacked off on the updates since Jones has been back since the shows have been sort of naff.
Back to the Rolf Harris; Cliff Richards; Disco days; meandering sets; melodica thing . He really needs a guest in once or twice a week to focus.
It gets a bit too like Jimmy Savilles old Sunday Lunchtime show ,with points for bands full names etc.

Jonesy needs to join MySpace Anonymous. You think digging ditches
is bad? Try working underneath the air conditioner vents in the
Indie studio.

ELP-Knife's Edge
Mr. Big (from the '70s)-Romeo
Rory Gallagher-Tattoed Lady

Mr. Shovel tries to cover the air conditioner vents with
