Jon Mooneyham has poked his grubby fingers in a variety of notable musical pies over the past thirty-plus years. In the Eighties, he hosted “Being Boiled” on KGOU; performed in Memluks (Oklahoma’s first post-punk band); interviewed dozens of notable musicians for both print and broadcast mediums (Captain Beefheart, Laurie Anderson, The Birthday Party, Coil, Diamanda Galas, Frank Zappa, and on and on); co-hosted and produced the notorious music video program “Adjust Your Heads;” presented live shows by Severed Heads, Skinny Puppy, Sonic Youth, Savage Republic, Chris and Cosey, Ministry, Eugene Chadbourne and others; was a member of 23BC, an innovative DJ collective; and infamously ruled as resident DJ at Inertia, an industrial dance club in OKC.
Moving into the Nineties, Mooneyham designed album covers for the Flaming Lips (as well as playing in the Lips for a hot second) and several other bands; led the bands Little Stabs at Happiness, Three Ring Carcass, and fake-jazz combo The Melodious Thunk Infinitet; toured across the US with Okie indie band Barnyard Slut; and deejayed left-field and downtempo music at clubs and bars in Oklahoma City under the name DJ Bronzai.
As the Oughts loomed, he continued deejaying, organized a series of free-improvisation performances (drawing on a varied pool of musicians) under the name White Walls; and, as The Bronze Eye, performed abstract turntable compositions at venues in Oklahoma and Texas.
A 2010 guest session (spinning post-punk dance tracks) on Spy Lab led to an invitation from Ferris to create a post-punk show for The Spy; hence, “Millions Now Listening Will Never Die,” which has been on the air since June 2010.
A desire to expand the variety of music he could spin has led to “Everything All at Once Forever,” a hour-long program featuring a different conceptual theme each week, and which, as the show’s name implies, draws upon the incredible breadth and history of recorded sound available in the current Age of the Internet.
