Special Edition - Monkee Peter Tork!
When Peter Tork died, I remembered him fondly from having been on the show a few times, including in-studio where he played a few tunes ("Pleasant Valley Sunday") and took some calls. He was a great guy. But I couldn't find a copy of the show. Leave it to the Internet. A podcaster and Monkees fan in Texas had my conversation with Peter from 2005 and posted it! I've grabbed it - and it's here in its entirety.  Good Old Fashioned 50,000-watt WBT sound from 2005 including me messing around with Al and Stacey and some other in-studio yap. If you're a Monkees fan - or a long-time fan of our show - I think you'll love this.
