Conceptualized in 1967 after attending the Monterey Pop Music Festival, John Gilliland's radio documentary series The Pop Chronicles traced the history of popular music from the 1950s through the 1960s, first airing on KRLA Pasadena, California in February 1969. This particular episode contains an extended interview with Michael Nesmith. It's quite an interesting listen. The scorn that was heaped upon The Monkees at that time by everyone from musicians to the mainstream press is more than readily apparent here.
