Oral History of Indie 103.1



"Steve Jones: I was driving around and I stumbled across the station and all they were doing was playing punk music and there was no commercials and I'm thinking, what the hell is going on here? This is something, I've never heard anything like this and I didn't know what it was. I was excited about turning the radio on and not hearing the same old crap that you was hearing at that time, like every other station. That was it.

Then, I get a phone call from this guy, Terry Anzaldo, who met me when I was signed to Maverick with my band called Neurotic Outsiders. He was the radio promotion guy. He called me and said, "Jonesy, have you heard of this new station?"
I'm like, "Yeah, it's great. What about it?" He goes, "Well, this guy wants to see if you want to get involved in it." I'm like, "I'm in, I want to be a DJ." It had just come out of my mouth. I never thought about it prior to that. The guy was Michael Steele, obviously.

Him and Shovel came over to my house. I was laid up in bed. I had back surgery and it was a nightmare and they come over and we talked about it. I said, the only stipulation that I want to put forward is that you let me play what I want to play and say what I want to say. They said okay, which is pretty much unheard of. I don't even know if they wanted me to be a DJ. I put it forward to them first before they could finish what they wanted to say to me, you know."
