Steve Jones, the Sex Pistols guitarist and host of Jonesy's Jukebox, is looking for a new job because Indie 103.1, the radio station that employed him, is no longer broadcasting:

"Indie, that was my radio station, so to speak. I think people are starting to really miss it and realize how special it was. And for me, taking the job, it got me out of a rut that I was always in. I'm pretty much an isolated person. I'd rather stay home and play video games. For me to go somewhere every day, it was the best thing for me as a human. It got me away from the madness in my head."

"Wherever I go, I will still do my show the same; I wouldn't change it. I don't think I should, and I hope any of these people that are thinking of hiring me aren't going to try to mold me into something else. I'd be bored out of me brain. I'd last two weeks if they had me reading some nonsense. If you want someone to read a piece of paper, just hire someone else. There's loads of people that do that."

Jonesy says he'll only take jobs in NYC or LA. I just called my radio station, Live 105, and tried to get them to call Jonesy and hire him. But they said no.

And Jonesy also said he might go on tour with Iggy and the Stooges. That's pretty cool.
