“Feel My Heat,” the Los Angeles specialty radio show hosted by actor-DJ Danny Masterson (That ’70s Show) and nightlife impresario Brent Bolthouse, has been yanked off the air. The show had a Monday night slot on Indie 103.1 for five years and was among the station’s most popular programs, helping break acts like MGMT, Vampire Weekend, and M.I.A. A rep for Masterson tells EW.com that the actor “resigned after creative differences ensued between he and the station’s new program director” and will shop the show around to other broadcasters, including satellite. An Indie insider contends Masterson was offered a later slot (midnight to 2 a.m. instead of 7 to 10 p.m.), but turned it down. All the station’s specialty programs, with the exception of lunch-time favorite Jonesy’s Jukebox, are apparently being moved out of the weekly lineup or so that the station can focus more on its playlist (and hopefully boost ratings). Other “celebrity DJs” on Indie’s roster include Henry Rollins and the Crystal Method.
