The Return of Jonesy's Jukebox on 955 KLOS!

That's right kids! Jonesy's Jukebox is returning to the radio airwaves starting this Friday, 10/30 & airing every Friday from 12 noon (or 12 bells) to 2pm on KLOS 95.5 FM. Steve Jones will be rejoined by producer Mark Sovel, aka “Mr. Shovel". In an announcement, the station calls the latest incarnation of the program a “two-hour open forum show where the only rule is doing whatever Jones wants.”
KLOS-FM has a playback of the show online with the songs stripped out. At least you can enjoy the conversation!…/30/october-30-jonesys-jukebox/

Game of Jones

Attention, all of you Steve Jones/Jonesy's Jukebox fans! Here is a special treat for you, especially if you are also a fan of the HBO show Game of Thrones! This comes from the website where Jonesy takes guitar in hand & takes it upon himself to catch everyone up on the going ons of the first 3 seasons of the show. I don't have HBO so I haven't actually seen Game of Thrones myself but judging by these videos, I would say that HBO missed a grand opportunity by not casting the Pontiff himself as a strolling minstrel who narrates the show! I have placed the links below in order of season. Please enjoy!

Still Here!

Hi everybody, I just wanted to check in with you again & let you know I still check this blog out now & then to see what posts are being viewed & where the traffic is coming from. If you are a returning visitor, I want to thank you for remembering this blog after all this time. It has been over 6 years since I moved these playlists over to this current blogspot. If you just discovered this blog for the first time, then I again thank you for being here & I hope you will return & tell others about these playlists & about the glory days of Indie 1031. I still greatly appreciate all of my US page viewers as well as my international ones. I haven't done much work on the site lately. I finally removed the link to Jonesy's Jukebox on KROQ because it doesn't appear that the show will ever be returning. I have also added a link to Big Sonic Heaven since Darren Revell is doing podcasts again of that show on his own website. I also noticed a lot of traffic recently on the blog so I fixed the broken link so it will now point to the correct website aka the new Independent FM. As I previously mentioned, All Time is Now is no longer broadcasting on but DJ Shark still broadcasts the archived shows on his own website. I still enjoy listening to them so I will leave the link up in case you do too. That's about it until I have any more news to pass on to you all. Again, thanks for your continued support! RobertKP

Happy 2014

Hi everybody, I know we are far into the year by now but it has been quite some time since I have checked in & done an update here. While updating the links section, I discovered that Moheak Radio has now evolved into The Independent FM. TK is still at the helm joined by Mo Herms & other new djs along with some of the old favorite Indie 103.1 shows, although it looks like Darren Revell & Big Sonic Heaven have moved on elsewhere. I haven't listened to the station since it changed but I plan to check it out. Mark "Mr Shovel" Sovel is not only still doing his Saturday night show on KCSN but has become the music director of the station. A belated congratulations Mark! (I did congratulate him personally on Facebook.) I rarely listen to Jonesy on KROQ anymore but I assume that the show is still doing ok. I still tune into now & then to hear Retrograde or one of the other shows or just to hear what they are playing. I liked the show All Time Is Now with DJ Shark quite a bit & I don't know why they dropped it. You can still hear the archived shows & occasional new ones at DJ Shark's link which I have added below. I sure miss the old on-air Indie103.1 & I know a lot of you still do too. One last note - 225 people have graciously visited this site in the last month & I thank you all, as well as everyone who continues to visit throughout the year. Out of those 225 visitors, I was amazed to see that 14 of them were from the Ukrane. With all the chaos that is going on in that country right now, I am humbled & astonished that 14 souls from that country chose to spend a few minutes of their valuable free time to visit my little site. Thank you so much & thanks to all who continue to support this blog with your page views & interest. RobertKP

Mr. Shovel on KCSN

A thousand apologies! I have been so busy with personal matters lately that I have neglected to tell you that Mark "Mr. Shovel" Sovel has a new show on station KCSN (Cal State Northridge) on Saturday nights from 8-10pm. It is "City of Night with Mr. Shovel" & you can hear at 88.5 KCSN in Los Angeles or at
