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!
