For fans of smooth and topically coherent music programming on the radio, take warning. Steve Jones, the Sex Pistols guitarist and beloved antihero of the L.A. airwaves, is finally back.

KLOS 95.5 announced that it has signed a new deal with Jones to bring his trademark program Jonesy's Jukebox back to terrestrial radio. Jones will be joined by his longtime producer Mark Sovel (known to fans as "Mr. Shovel").

Jonesy's show -- a free-form, hilarious and sometimes surreal mix of vintage punk and sprawling interviews with stars such as Brian Wilson, Iggy Pop and Robert Plant -- was a fixture at the scrappy Indie 103.1 from its 2004 founding until its close in 2009. Since then, Jonesy's Jukebox had a limited run online, and moved to KROQ between 2010 and March 2013.

KLOS described the programming in a release as a "two-hour open forum show where the only rule is doing whatever Jones wants."

The new show starts Friday, noon 2 p.m. Get ready for cries of "Mustard!" to ring again from cars all along Sunset Blvd.
