In the latest Zilch podcast, Monkees historian Andrew Sandoval and Rhino producer John Hughes preview the upcoming Monkees Blu-ray set and reveal for the first time in-depth details about its contents. The duo discuss the restoration process of The Monkees' television series, recent film discoveries (promised to shock even the most hardcore Monkees fan, and including the full uncut performance of "Listen to the Band" from 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee), outtakes from Head, and more. Andrew also relays that a promo video for "Randy Scouse Git" produced by Top of the Pops in the United Kingdom has been discovered (unseen since its original airing in 1967), and that it will be one of the many bonuses included in the package (along with The Monkees' appearances on The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour and The Johnny Cash Show in 1969).
