Thanks to Scott Catton for submitting this promotional postcard for Micky's former morning radio show on WCBS-FM in New York.
On January 10, 2005, Dolenz replaced Dan Taylor as the morning disc jockey at oldies radio station WCBS-FM in New York. On June 3, 2005, Dolenz celebrated his 100th show with a special morning show at B.B. Kings. In an ironic and controversial twist, that was also his last regular show at the station; at 5:00 PM, WCBS-FM announced that the station would replace its oldies format with a "Jack" format, and fired all of the station's on-air jocks.
However, WCBS-FM had since returned to its oldies format on July 12, 2007, with Taylor reassuming his role again as the morning disc jockey the following day. Several months later, Dolenz was invited back afterward for him to do his long postponed 101st show, and his final in-studio appearance there at the station, by guest hosting on a three-hour broadcast stint during its Sunday evening New York Radio Greats program on February 3, 2008.
Here's the Changes duo onstage during the 2002 tour. After Peter's departure at the end of the 2001 Tour, Micky and Davy would deliver one more round of Monkees concerts until Peter rejoined them for the 45th Anniversary World Tour in 2011.
Tomorrow the blog will feature a great article that profiles Micky as a drummer, including his influences, his style, his preferred drum equipment, and more. Below is a picture from the spread that shows Micky behind a Gretsch kit. Be sure to check it out!
