Who We're Following

THE MONKEES ON KDWB-AM IN 1967 

psychojello:

To my knowledge this is the only complete recording of the Monkees taking over a radio station during their 1967 tour. Over four hours of them goofing off, insulting advertisers, trying to figure out how to work the equipment, and playing their favorite records of course. This is fascinating!

The Monkees were in the Twin Cities for a concert and broadcast from KDWB’s “Secret City” with a remote from the hotel where the band was staying. Featuring Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones.

The recordings feature candid, silly and serious moments from The Monkees - a wonderful collection of recordings during the two days The Monkees took over the radio station.

August 3, 1967 to 4 am on August 4, 1967: Starting with coverage of the Monkees’ airplane arrival at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport followed by Michael, Peter, Micky and Davy broadcasting from "Secret City" playing records, performing a skit, and some candid comments by Micky about criticism concerning the group not playing all instruments in their songs, thoughts about The Beatles, and more. Includes KDWB personalities Charlie Brown, Earl Trout, Tac Hammer, Bobby Davis and newscast by Robert Davis. #1 30 MB - #2 21 MB (provided by Curt Lundgren)

August 4, 1967 (3:00-6:00 pm) : Mostly featuring Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork spinning records with Michael having fun insulting KDWB advertisers including Dayton’s and J A Gerber Jewelers and Peter playing the banjo. Includes newscast by Don Miller.    #1 16 MB - #2 23 MB - #3 19 MB - #4 8 MB    (provided by Phil Kitchen and Jeanne Anderson)

Includes commercials for J A Gerber Jewelers, Durkee Seasoned Spices, Ray Conniff “This is My Song” album, Pedwin Shoes, Baskin-Robbins, Preparation H, Heileman Old Style Beer, Minnesota Dragways, NCC Drive-In Theaters, “The Big Mouth” with Jerry Lewis (movie), Dad’s Root Beer, Mobile, Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum, Schlitz Beer, Coca Cola (sung by Ray Charles), STP, Summer Blonde Hair Spray, Honda and Hamm’s Beer.

So, it was just the scheduling. And now I’m doing it because I want to.

Mike Nesmith, in a BBC2 radio interview with Davy, Micky, and Peter in 1997, on why he hadn’t toured previously with the Monkees and his decision to tour again.

All four Monkees traveled to England in early 1997 to promote their upcoming March UK tour. Here the band appears on BBC Radio 2 on January 11, 1997 to discuss the tour, their new album, and other topics.

Great to hear them all together.

BUT MIKE NEVER TOURED WITH THE MONKEES UNTIL DAVY DIED.

Oh wait.

/sarcasm

Papa Gene’s Blues —- The Monkees  LIVE (KLOS Radio, Los Angeles,) 1989 

“It’s the first time in almost 400 years that The Monkees have been together.” —-Mike Nesmith

Someone may have already posted this, but I just heard it for the first time, and I  think it’s great :D

Many thanks to Bluemoonalto for posting Peter’s interview on WHNN-FM in Michigan. We hope this post isn’t too superfluous, but we’ve uploaded the interview to SoundCloud for easier listening, just in case anyone has had trouble with the radio’s website (and remember, skip to the 17:08 mark for that glee-inducing Torksmith moment!).

Excerpt

Micky Dolenz

Micky Dolenz on “Breakfast with the Beatles” - A Fan Calls In

So, for those of you who missed Micky’s appearance on the “Breakfast with the Beatles” radio show on July 22nd, this is an excerpt from the show that we just had to share here.

Listen as fan Theresa calls in and talks about going out on a few dates with Tommy Boyce in the ’60s, and about a VERY interesting event that took place on Davy Jones’ heart-shaped bed… (And we give this lady a LOT of credit for actually saying this stuff to Micky on the air!)

Peter Tork being interviewed by Debbi Calton, 102.9 WMGK Philadelphia, on June 8, 2012.

In this interview, Peter talks about Shoe Suede Blues, his Greenwich Village days, the improv lessons he learned while on The Monkees, which Monkee he had already met prior to being cast in the show (ahem), and the death of Davy Jones.

Peter Tork on the “Ask MomRN” radio show on Wednesday, April 25th, talking about head and neck cancer awareness. (Spoiler alert: Peter mentions oral sex and its potential connection to cancer. No, really.)
