In promotion of their upcoming appearance at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles, The Monkees appeared on The Mark and Brian Show on 95.5 KLOS-FM on June 28, 1989. The quartet sang "Papa Gene's Blues" and "Daydream Believer" live on the air that day.
Note the gentleman behind Peter is wearing a Pacific Arts T-shirt. Pacific Arts, of course, was Michael Nesmith's production company that he led from the late 1970s through the 1990s.
Thanks to longtime contributor Scott Catton for sharing a photo of a pin made especially for the July 10, 1989 Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.
Speaking of Scott, he happened to work security for the Walk of Fame event. You can see him in the photo below at the far right, wearing a Monkees Headquarters shirt, purchased from Gary Strobl, nonetheless! Scott is in good company - there's Bert Schneider to the right of the podium with his arms crossed.
The Monkees received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 10, 1989. One half of Raybert, Bert Schneider, joined Micky, Michael, Davy, and Peter on that day. Bert was one of The Monkees' biggest fans. When he passed away in 2011, Monkees archivist Andrew Sandoval posted the following on Facebook:
"One of the last times I spoke to Bert he stopped our conversation to impress upon me, 'By the way, I'm a Monkees fan.' I think that says a lot about why The Monkees show happened, why the group became a group and why many of the projects Bert turned his hand to had the quality they did. He was a fan."
“We are all very, very saddened by his passing. So much about him that I miss to this day. He was a man of extraordinary gifts, many of which he was not able to share due to one thing or another. I have to say, I truly loved the man.” –Peter Tork
“I am in a state of shock…The time we worked together and had together is something I’ll never forget. He was the brother I never had and this leaves a gigantic hole in my heart. The memories have and will last a lifetime.” –Micky Dolenz
“David’s spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people who remember with me the good times, and the healing times, that were created for so many, including us. I have fond memories. I wish him safe travels.” –Michael Nesmith
