Joe Escalante of Kung Fu Records and the Vandals has become the new permanent host of Indie 103.1's morning show. Joe's new show will air in the Los Angeles area on Monday thru Friday from 6 to 10 am, Pacific Standard Time. He will also continue to host his "Barely Legal" advice show, which airs on Indie on Fridays at 11 am.

The morning spot on the station was previously occupied by Dicky Barrett. Barrett was popular in the position but fired this past March, resulting in a public spat between the Mighty Mighty Bosstones frontman and the station's management.

Indie boasts a number of punk personalities in its ranks, including 22 Jacks / SideOneDummy's Joe Sib, Black Flag's Henry Rollins, and Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols.
