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.

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."

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" :-)
