Monkees KHJ Radio ad

Los Angeles radio station KHJ staged one of the first public appearances made by The Monkees on September 11, 1966. Contest winners rode on a train to the coastal town of Del Mar, California, which had been renamed ‘Clarksville’ for the day by the town’s mayor. Landing on the beach in two helicopters and dressed in their signature double-breasted shirts, the band met winners of KHJ’s radio contest. After the event, the group traveled by train with the contest winners back to Los Angeles. On one of the train cars, The Monkees gave their first true live public performance. This is an audio file containing a rare radio advertisement for the KHJ event. Please visit my website at On Twitter:
