LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The popular radio program “Jonesy’s Jukebox” will be returning to KROQ beginning on Sunday, October 10, 2010, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., according to the station.
Sex Pistol’s co-founder/guitarist and pop culture icon Steve Jones will join KROQ-FM’s air staff with his weekly two-hour program, which will be available on air and online at kroq.com.
“They are letting me play whatever I want—and that’s good for me,” Jones said referring to his new gig at KROQ.
Jones re-claims the radio airwaves with “Jonesy’s Jukebox”, the influential and acclaimed radio program made famous on KDLD/KDLE-FM (Indie 103.1).
“Jonesy’s Jukebox” on KROQ-FM will feature an irreverent mix of new music from iconic artists, developing talent, and eclectic cuts from his personal music collection.
“Sunday nights on KROQ has historically been the home to groundbreaking programming beginning with the legendary Rodney Bingenheimer over 30 years ago. In fact, Rodney was one of the first DJ’s in America to play the Sex Pistols” said Kevin Weatherly, Senior Vice President, Programming, CBS RADIO and Program Director for 106.7 KROQ FM.
“Steve is punk rock royalty and a proven tastemaker. I’m thrilled that Jonesy’s Jukebox can now be heard alongside KROQ Locals Only, Loveline and Rodney on the Roq.”
