The first hour is a tribute to the Monkees in lieu of the passing of Davy Jones this past week. During the show we had an excited caller who thought we did a bang up job. Every week there is someone in this realm of music who passes away, so I don't usually spend a lot of time on tributes. But the Monkees were so influential on me and many others of my generation and beyond that I had to spend some time on them . Hey even MTV copied their video format. And you can't help but smile when you hear a Monkees tune. The kids today all know I'm A Believer because it was in Shrek. But that was a cover tune. I wonder if they even know it was the Monkees who did that tune first. LOL The second hour is filled with a good variety of genres as usual including the beutiful Ultimat Spinach track-5th Horseman of the Apocalypse which I listened to over and over again when I was 16 or so. It was so different than anything else out there at the time. Unfortunately , it gets cut off for the next show coming on. I will have to feature it again on a show in the near future.
