Jonesy's Jukebox Is Back!

Sex Pistols' guitarist Steve Jones hosted some of the most entertaining radio over a 4-5 year run on LA radio station Indie 103.1, until the station suddenly changed formats. Jones did a perfectly freeform show, playing songs he wanted to play, telling stories about his bands' good ol' days, jamming impromptu riffs on his acoustic guitar or even whistling tunes, and fantastic interviews. I loved listing to the podcast versions when I had lengthy car travel for work, and was quite saddened when Indie 103 vanished.

Now Jonesy's Jukebox is back! It's on legendary LA station KROQ-FM, 106.7, and yes home of Rodney Bingenheimer's "Rodney On The ROQ" show.

It does not appear that the show is available in podcast form yet, but you can listen live or to archived bits via the station's website. The show airs live every Sunday from 7-9pm Pacific (10-midnight locally) and can be streamed live.

Many, many thanks to Bryan Stumpf for tipping me off to the new show!
