The TV show, The Monkees, premiered on September 12th, 1966. With comedy that was a little off-the-wall and fun music, it’s no surprise that the series still lives on in re-runs and the music continues through the touring of the remaining members.
The Monkees were, and still are, one of my favorite groups. I used to watch their show every day growing up and got to see them for the first time in the mid-eighties in Atlantic City. I saw them pretty much every time they played Philly after that. I even had the pleasure of meeting Davy Jones after a performance at the Woodbine Inn in NJ in the late eighties/early nineties. He was so nice to talk to and autographed my Monkees’ picture disk.
If you’re a Monkees fan like me, then you may want to stop by and pick up The Monkees Greatest Hits, More of the Monkees or my favorite, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.
