Letterman and Conan all knotted up!

The latest poll pitted four late night talk show gurus against each other. The winner? Well, we can't always get what we want, and in this instance, we couldn't settle the debate between the standard in the 11:30 slot, and the newcomer.

David Letterman and Conan O'Brien split the votes, right down the middle, 50-50.

I guess we'll have to wait for the first batch of ratings to see the real winner!

Bono Digs Spidey, Radiohead gets Radio Ripped, and Pearl Jam Cashes in on Ten Again

This week on The Jukebox your awesome DJs talked about the upcoming Spiderman musical entitled Turn Off the Dark. Bono and his U2 crew are writing original music and lyrics for the show.

Meat Loaf's New Album, The Smallest Radio EVER, and Late Night TV gone wild, and MORE! (2-18-09)

The jukebox had a full slate this week, covering the latest and greatest in classic rock, all while playing some good ass good times rock and roll.

The crew started off the show by talking about Meat Loaf's up-coming album. The rock opera superstar's newest project can only be described as epic. This also led the Juke Box Heroes to talk about The Red Hot Chili Peppers and how they're linked to Joaquin Phoenix's new hip hop album. While you probably won't ever want to listen to that album, you can listen to the segment below.
