The Monkees and friends took home two awards at the 19th Primetime Emmy Awards on June 4, 1967: Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Comedy (for Jim Frawley).
I received this photo when I joined a Monkees fan club at some point in the mid-1980s. In those days I wondered when and where the picture was taken. The photo was actually snapped coming off an airplane in New York City during the promotional tour before the debut of the television show in September 1966.
Longtime Monkees collector and expert Gary Strobl has apparently signed a deal to publish his long talked about book on The Monkees. Monkees and rock photographer Henry Diltz is part of the project. Strobl is also discussing the possibility of releasing live film footage from the 1997 UK tour.
This message appeared on the Forgotten Hits blog on Sunday:
How are you? Busy as a bee, I'm sure. Thank you for your amazing Forgotten Hits. I am reaching out to you and your readers to help me find the missing pieces of The Monkees puzzle. Henry Diltz and I along with Harvey and Kenneth Kubernik have recently signed a contract with Omnibus Press to put together a 500-page hardcover, full-color coffee table book on the original phenomenon of The Monkees. I am trying to track down anybody who may have been connected to or experienced the original Monkeemania. I am looking for interviews, original newspaper clippings, photos, radio station surveys, concert tickets, posters, etc. from the time frame of 1962 - 1973. Anybody who contributes to this project will get a proper credit in the book. I want to make this the most definitive book possible on The Monkees. I am sending you the PDF which defines the goal of this book. Our beloved David Jones told me on February 12, 2012, at the Burbank Marriott, "Gary, it's time to finish your book. I will help you get it done." We also talked about editing together the last seven concerts with all four Monkees that I shot in England in March, 1997. I want to fulfill these dreams for both David and me. I could sure use your help. Anyway, drop me a line when you have the chance. Here are a some photos from the last weekend I spent with David. David Keeler took these wonderful photos. I hope you and your family are in good health. Onward and upward!

I just heard a commercial on Sirius advertising an interview with Michael Nesmith scheduled for this evening. Nez will appear on channel 60 (Outlaw Country) at 9pm ET. The station's website says the interview will be replayed on Wednesday, May 14 at 11pm ET.
I'm going to try and tune in so hopefully I'll be able to provide a report.
UPDATE: Here's a recap of tonight's 30 minute interview:
The interview was conducted by Meredith Ochs.
A big thanks to JD at Monkee45s.net for submitting this unused ticket for a Monkees concert in Massachusetts on June 20, 1969 at the Eastern States Expo. Thanks, JD!
