Radio8Ball is a weekly musical divination show hosted by Andras Jones. On the air, Jones randomly grabs a CD, puts it in the player, chooses "shuffle" and lets the musical piece guide him as he answers questions from listeners across the world. Jones believes there's the hand of some invisible disc jockey at work when he's on-air.

Jones will take his act on stage with the band Jim's Big Ego from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1 in Somerville, Mass. There, he'll take questions from a live audience. The show is called "The Ego and the Oracle."
