It’s the summer. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, The Jones engage in an epic battle to draft their favorite television shows in the following categories: Comedy, Drama, Reality, Saturday Morning Cartoons, and Teen Drama. Find out which critically acclaimed comedy was left waiting in the Green Room, which defunct TV show Skeets scooped up for Drama, and which TBJ’er traded away his No. 1 Reality pick. All that, plus The Urban Fork channel, a dramatic “90210″ reenactment, and the theme song to “My Pet Monster.”

And, of course, play along, and tell us which channel you’d watch.

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show we catch up on a sporty weekend in Jonesland. Skeets and Trey joined NBA players and The Arcade Fire’s Win Butler in a charity basketball tournament, while Tas joined the Rounders for a provincial softball tourney. Find out what it’s like to play against an NBA player who’s actually trying, what it’s like to be a grown man sharing a double bed with six of your best friends, and why leading a Grammy winning band is like leading a basketball team.

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show we belatedly celebrate Labor Day with a show about our worst jobs. What’s it like to carry a dead man into a freezer? Why is group calisthenics an important part of building automotive frames? What is a “Fax Boy”? And how many times can you hear “Pass The Dutchie” before you kill yourself? All that, plus lobsters, laser tag and an important announcement regarding next week’s shows. So listen to this and stick it to the man!

And, oh, if you haven’t done so already, please give generously to our Rock The Court charity basketball team. All proceeds go to Athletes for Africa and the St. Alban’s Boys & Girls Club. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show, we talk to The Basketball Jones’ editor and new Canadian, Trey Kerby. What skills does he have that the other four TBJ’ers don’t? What will he miss most about America? What lurks in his dark past? (Hint: It involves a Keg party, handcuffs and White Castle). And most importantly, what’s the weather like in Lombard, IL?

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show we discuss hangovers. Well, not really. We actually discuss suspicious waitresses, weird theatre cast parties, something called “Mr. Saxobeat,” and the poignant song craft of one Matthew Osten. Enjoy!

The [BLANK] Jones: Pets

It’s the summer. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show we discuss pets. Who was the only TBJ’er to grow up with dogs? What were Skeets’ “poor-people” pets? Why did Tas’ dad almost strangle a friend’s 130-pound German Sheppard? Are pets a test-run for kids? What the fuck is up with cats? And where does owning an iguana rank in terms of rebellious teenager activity? All that, plus rabbit shit, a canary named “Harley,” and hypothetical question that involves a cliff, your dog, and a homeless man with syphilis.
