Transmission 2009

Sgt. Monkees Only Chart Flub Land

Mickey, Mike, Davey and Peter - maybe not as instantaneously recognizable as John, Paul, George and Ringo or Mark, Don and Mel or even Dino, Desi and Billy - but The Monkees have passed the test of time better than many of their 60s contemporaries. They have been in and out of vogue since their conception, but never wiped from our collective memory. Can you sing the first few lines of their theme song - of course you can! Do you remember Mike's hat of choice - without a doubt. Double breasted shirts, liquid paper and Head - all part of the the Monkees legacy! Pre-fab or not, this band deserves more than just a footnote in the great Rock and Roll History Book! Hey Hey - It's The Monkees!

T2009 is a 59.4mb 128k mp3 1:04:51 in length made loud to be played loud!

"we're the young generation and we've got something to say"


* Check out Frank Zappa and Monkee Mike on Episode 57 of The Monkees, "The Monkees Blow Their Minds", originally aired on March 11, 1968.

** For an incredible treasure-trove of all things Monkees, you should visit the outstanding Dartman's World Of Wonder blog and his Month Of Monkees posts. It's like finding money, end of school and Christmas rolled into one!
