It's great to see this show up on YouTube. I remember watching it when it was first aired. The Monkees had come off the road in September 1989 and this was the first high profile Monkees-related TV appearance after that point. Davy is the first guest...
Brand new to the Live Almanac's YouTube channel is Bill Chadwick's single for Dot Records, "Talking to the Wall"/"If You Have the Time." Thanks to Kevin Schmid for providing the audio, and the scans of the 45s in the video are courtesy of Monkee45s.
Bassist Bobby Dick was a member of the 1960s music group, The Sundowners, who opened for The Monkees (along with Jimi Hendrix and Lynne Randell) on their 1967 summer tour. In this two-part interview from the Headquarters radio program (originally airing on August 18 and September 1, 1988), Bobby talks about his days with The Sundowners, touring with Jimi Hendrix, and what it was like being on the road with The Monkees in 1967.

During the 2014 spring tour, Micky, Michael, and Peter performed at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan. Thanks to Monkees backing band member, keyboardist Dave Alexander, for uploading this video to YouTube!
I have three separate audio files of this performance on the Live Almanac's YouTube channel. The video below, courtesy of YouTube user TheBeatlesFanatic231, features the entire 1969 Joey Bishop Show performance with Sam & The Goodtimers as one complete file. Micky, Mike, and Davy showcase "I'm a Believer," "Someday Man," and "Listen to the Band" during their April 24, 1969 guest appearance. Enjoy!
