Chatting With Jonesy

For this week's podcast I was honored to be a part of the legendary LA Radio show Jonesy's Jukebox on 103.1 FM as part of the LA Times Envelope/Buzzmeter Panel.

The Envelope is a special section to the LA Times that I was able to write for in 2007 and the buzzmeter is a part of The Envelope's website which compiles a group of journalists, critics and pundits to rank Oscar categories and try and predict both nominations and the winners themselves.

If yer unfamiliar with Jonesy's Jukebox, it's a show hosted by Steve Jones, the guitarist for the Sex Pistols and is a fantastic interview and music show here in LA that has filmmakers, actors, musicians and yes even an occasional journalist like me on for a chat. To hear more Jonesy, just type 103.1 FM into Itunes to find their great podcast.

As a Sex Pistols fanatic and fan of the show - it was a blast to be on it as a guest and quite strange to actually answer questions for once rather than ask them.

If only I'd prognosticated more Oscar winners....oh well - I got best picture, original screenplay, adapted screenplay and director correct and of course there's always next year...JG
