Modsnap Radio

My favorite source on the internet for Indie/Alternative rock is still The Independent FM (see link below). I have, however, discovered another great online station that plays a great variety of fantastic Indie/Alternative music. It is called Modsnap Radio & it originates from San Antonio, Texas. Just as an example, while listening for about 90 minutes, I heard such artists as Jem, New Order, Beastie Boys, Shiny Toy Guns, Red Flag, Depeche Mode, The National, TV on the Radio, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Knife, Saint Etienne & Sebadoh. I have added a link at the bottom of the page so if you are interested, please check it out.

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!

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 Nerdist.com 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!
