Monkee Business Fanzine was a quarterly publication that featured all the latest about The Monkees and their individual careers, as well as original articles, classified listings, and much more. It was published by editor Maggie McManus from 1977-2002. Each member of The Monkees would speak personally to Maggie, making it the most reputable source for Monkees information, before and after the 1986 revival of the group. By the early 2000s, the rise and rapid spread of the World Wide Web helped make publications like MBF become defunct.
In this interview with Paris Stachtiaris and John Di Maio, Maggie talks about the birth of MBF, her assessment of The Monkees' legacy, the fractured relationship between the group and MTV that had occurred at the time of this 1987 interview, and more.
