"JJ Grey will be the special guest on Jonesy's Jukebox tomorrow (3/29) at Noon PT on INDIE 103-1 (one-o-three-1) in Los Angeles. Join host Steve Jones (ex-Sex Pistol) and JJ as they discuss the new JJ Grey & MOFRO release, Country Ghetto. JJ will break out his acoustic guitar as well and perform a few tunes."

"Long Time Man" w/ Steve
From their journal;
"LA was a Riot!
In Los Angeles this afternoon. Played live on Jonsey's Jukebox on Indie 103.1. Doing the show was fun cause Jonsey has a great sense of humor and doesn't mind going off the rails at all. Whoever owned the building that all the radio stations we're in had a sense of humor too, just look at this sofa. They told us to have a seat but I couldn't bring myself to do it..LoL. The show at the Knitting factory was dyn-o-mite thanks to a rambunctious crew and our beautiful friend Gina who rocked the pipes during the encore!"

Hey guys. Those you who live in L.A. know that the raddest show on the air is "Jonesy's Jukebox," hosted by one-and-only Sex Pistol Steve Jones. Best. Radio Show. Ever.
Anyhoo, recently on Mondays he's started doing a segment called "Jonesy's Jukebox Jury," on which he blindly plays new songs for a panel of music "experts" who then critique the tunes. Instead of a "thumbs up/down" scenario, panelists give the songs ratings of either "mustard" (good) or "pants" (bad).
Past Jury guests have included Duran Duran's John Taylor and Morrissey's guitar player...and now ME! Yes, I will be offering my typical mouthy musical opinions on the show this Monday, March 26, 11am-1pm PST!
...and dont "Read more" unless there is something telling you to do that.
I need to go fix the stupid blogger recommended "Read More" system.

1977, after being with the label for just six days The Sex Pistols were fired from A&M due to pressure from other label artists and its Los Angeles head office. 25,000 copies of ‘God Save The Queen’ were pressed and the band made £75,000 ($127,500) from the deal.

( MMMM. It appears it is not Jonesys Jukebox from 10-2 but Shovels 10-12 show then the Jukebox. That is not a bad thing but that is not what they were really advertising )
Levis personnel to Shovel "Just because you are on the radio doesnt mean you have to dress like that"
Look at the graphic Indie is using; is that Steve or Lou Reed in the 70's

How about at least an edited 2 hours of the Pistols and Spedding as a treat.
Or just let Jose carry on for a couple more hours trying to be Steve for the time period :-)

That changed . A year ago the station started to change and then shows were shifted about and playlists changed but still a loose knit group of people stayed in touch. I never met any of them, just not my thing to do, let alone had any contact that gained me anything from Indie , some replied too emails but nothing more. On Sunday one of Indies original supporters and staunchest intial listeners passed away. I know nobody at the station knows or cares, as it is a commercial enterprise , but i would just like to make note in passing. Some people who knew cared.
If i felt right enough to pass on the private emails and messages that were generated by this personality i would do so but do not feel comfortable doing that . Trying to control the force of nature that she was... it was definitely an interesting thing to be involved in.
Peace and thinking of the kid.
I know himself was a big Damned fan as his mom asked Dicky to play them for his birthday, and Dicky got Rat Scabies to do the dedication, but these lyrics strike a more important chord for me at this time....
The Clash; "Stay Free"
and i move anyway i wanna go
i'll never forget the feeling i got
when i heard that you'd got home
an' i'll never forget the smile on my face
'cos i knew where you would be
an' if you're in the crown tonight
have a drink on me
but go easy...step lightly...stay free"
- Mark McGrath ; of T.V's Extra !!
- Liam Gowing ; no idea , a journalist turns up on a search so lets go with that. (OK. LA City editor for Onion AV Club and other things )
- Tracey Ullman ; One of a kind
- Dave French ; No idea either; i thought it said Dawn French; Vicar of Dibley; but apparently not. Ah !! Steve says; Sculptor and "You're the nobody this week"
This is/ was shaping up to be a great one. ( Dawn French and Tracey Ullman would have been great but now .... )
Steve has already said he is driving to Austin, so he must be leaving soon after this show :-)
( Update Monday: Apparently this show was recorded Saturday, so Steve must be on his way , that means Tuesdays show will be a repeat )
Tracey added to this by saying "Dont spoil my Saturday". She had just been told about Freddie of Freddie and the Dreamers death )
NB Why not have Tracey fill in sometime when they are going to play a repeat. Like tomorrow
... and Sir William Connolly is in town as well at least till the 24th .
( p.s. can i just say how much i hate the new blogger. what a pain in the arse )
