Famed actress Rose Marie guested on two episodes of The Monkees during its first season: "Monkees in a Ghost Town" and "Monkee Mother." Here's a great interview with her courtesy of the Zilch podcast as conducted by Jeff Gehringer:
Peter Mills is a longtime Monkees fan and author of The Monkees, Head, and the 60s. Back in September, Peter and his publisher, Jawbone Press, were kind enough to share an exclusive excerpt from the book with the Live Almanac. It's both a scholarly and entertaining work that fans of The Monkees are certain to enjoy. If you haven't checked it out, it's available in paperback and as a Kindle download. I've had the pleasure of exchanging several emails with Peter and I'm happy to give his book an enthusiastic endorsement!

While on the subject, here's a Facebook post that reviews The Monkees' history at the Chicago site where they filmed several musical sequences for the second season of their televison show in the Rainbow Room. It later became home to Oprah Winfrey's talk show, of which Davy Jones was a guest in 1990.
John Billings has been the bass player in The Monkees' touring band since 2012. Here's a great interview with him that was conducted by Ken Mills over at Zilch. Enjoy!
