Virginmoney "An interview with Steve Jones"


Now you have your own radio show, do you have some sympathy now for journalists/presenters who interviewed you in your youth?
No, not really! I’m on KLOS 95.5 now, but I did have a show called Indie 103.1 which I did for five years. I think my show does well because they come in and they think they’ll be doing a normal radio show and I’m just the opposite. The worst thing, as any interviewer will tell you, is when you ask someone a question all they say is, “Yes,” or “No,” and never want to elaborate on anything. I remember Alan Parsons, the old prog guy, was a bit of a drag. He was that pompous old English dude who was a real music snob.
