The Debut of THE MONKEES

On September 12, 1966 a brand-new television series made its premiere on the NBC-TV network. We are talking about THE MONKEES, of course. The ratings were great, and at the Grammy Awards the following summer, this show *won* the Grammy for Best Comedy of the Year. And although the snobs in Cleveland refuse to admit these four fabulous musicians into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, in the past 40 plus years they have entertained generations of fans!

Although we lost Davy this past February, we still have Peter, Mickey, and Mike. In fact, they are going out on tour again this year, the first time Mike Nesmith has re-joined the others in several years. Unfortunately they aren't coming anywhere near to where I will be, but I will be present in absentia (is that even possible?).

Hey, Hey, We're the Monkees!!
Happy Birthday, MONKEES!
