In 2006, internet radio host Dave White celebrated The Monkees' 40 Anniversary on his Talking Television show. Along with Monkees fan, writer and publisher Bill Groves, they welcomed guests Steve Blauner, former partner of Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider; Monkees expert and collector Gary Strobl; and former New Monkees Marty Ross and Dino Kovas.
Fast forward to 30:40 for the formal start of the Monkees portion of the program (although there are other smaller Monkees bits before that point).
A big thanks to Bill Groves himself who tracked down the archive of this program, edited it and converted it, as well as Dave White for allowing it to be streamed here on the Live Almanac. A couple of Bill's articles from his Television Chronicles magazine are also available on the site, including a look back at the television show, an interview with Henry Diltz, and a piece on The New Monkees.
