INTERVIEW GUESTS: PETER TORK & MICKY DOLENZ of THE MONKEES

This edition of “Midwest BEAT with Tom Lounges” spotlights the music and career of one of America’s most beloved groups of the 1960s and still today — THE MONKEES!

Celebrating the 45th anniversary of their album “Headquarters,” the three surviving members of The Monkees are back on the road and coming to Northwest Indiana’s Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville for an 8pm concert on Saturday, May 31.   This radio program welcomes two of the Monkees — PETER TORK and MICKY DOLENZ — who join Lounges in reflecting back on the glory days of Monkee-mania, the group’s musical evolution and telling how the current tour and the long awaited return of “Monkee Mike” – Michael Nesmith – came to be and how things are going.

In between the many stories and memories shared are plenty of Monkees’ hits and deep cuts.  You better not “monkee around” and miss  this show!

    Been following your articles and interviews pertaining to rock n roll for years and I’m a longtime Monkee fan, good interviews with Peter and Micky! Too bad you couldn’t snag Mike, now that would have been interesting I’m sure. I’ll be there at the concert tonight, of course!

    I actually did interview Mike for this….but only for use in my print article. He agreed only to doing an email Q&A Interview for a feature article. I regret that was the case, because it would have been great to have him chime in along with Micky and Peter. He did give me some pretty nice comments for the print feature….the link is pasted here if you care to read it.

    Thanks for commenting!
