Indie 103.1 Fallout: What's Next For DJ Paul V and Neon Noise
At the World of Wonder gallery in Hollywood, I ran into none other than DJ Paul V, whose show Neon Noise ran every Sat., from Midnight to 3 a.m. And get this, Paul learned about the station's demise just like we all did, tuning in for Jonesy at noon and hearing the irritatingly robotic message about how they were gonna be forced to play "Puffy" and "Britney" (which by the way, is strange considering Sean Combs doesn't really have any new music out right now).
As of last night, the very bummed V still hadn't got a call or email from the station reps asking him to move to the net with them, or saying thanks for the memories, or even just farewell. Interesting, V (who used to manage Porno of Pyros back in the day) revealed to me exclusively that he had just met with Perry Farrell and his wife, and was confirmed to join the couple for a new prime time show on Indie. Obviously that won't happen now, and V said Farrell (as well Dark Matter's Dave Navarro who was with his Jane's bandmate in the studio when V called) were shocked and sad about the station's demise, and heard about it just like the rest of us as well.
Neon Noise fans can still get their electro-fix at Medusa Lounge, next Friday, Jan. 23, and hopefully every month. See www.myspace.com/neonnoize for more info. on the club and V's next move airwaves-wise.
