A special event occurred on June 28, 1989 when all four Monkees were guests on The Mark & Brian Show on KLOS-FM in Los Angeles, California. The quartet sang "Papa Gene's Blues" and "Daydream Believer" live on the air with Peter playing acoustic guitar. Michael was present to hype his concert appearance with Micky, Davy, and Peter at the Universal Amphitheatre on July 9, an event that would coincide with The Monkees receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame the next day.

Here's a brand new interview with Nez ahead of this Sunday's debut of the First National Band Redux!

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.
Listen to Davy Jones as he talks about his career in 1977, including his club act with Micky Dolenz, on KRUX in Phoenix, Arizona, a station he had visited 10 years earlier with The Monkees.
Micky and Davy discuss Peter's departure from The Monkees and his new group Release, music trends, their upcoming LP that ultimately became The Monkees Present, and more:
Below is portions of audio from Micky, Davy, and Michael's appearance on KRUX radio in Phoenix, Arizona on January 20, 1967. The Monkees spin records (including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Four Tops) and go live on air. The group is promoting their concert in Phoenix the next day, which was filmed for the last episode of the first season, "The Monkees on Tour." Portions of this radio broadcast are featured in that episode.
It was tradition for The Monkees to visit radio stations while on the road, starting with their very first concert appearance in Hawaii when they stopped by KPOI. This is a really entertaining listen and quite the time capsule!
