Davy was interviewed on the Harmon & Evans show (92.5 WXTU radio) in
Philadelphia this morning. He laid rest to the reports and rumors that he
was going to open his own Rock’n’Roll museum in Beavertown, PA, because
the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland has “snubbed” the Monkees by
not including them.

Davy was in a cheerful mood, and told the show’s hosts that the reports
of him trying to “snub” the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame were absolutely
*false*! He is renovating an old church in Beavertown that he purchased
a long time ago, and he intends to place much of his Monkees memorabilia
(gold records, photos, posters, etc) there for the fans to visit. He said
he is doing this since the Monkees probably won’t ever get into the
Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame because the only people who “got it [about the
Monkees] were the fans.” One of the hosts agreed saying he has been a
Monkees fan since the beginning.

Davy also mentioned that he’d been contacted by the Rock’n’Roll Hall of
Fame regarding being in their Teen Idols section. He didn’t reveal his

Harmon and Evans did “60 Seconds” with Davy, where they ask a series of
questions in one minute and the celebrity answers quickly. Some
questions they asked Davy:

Q. What is your all-time favorite song?
A. Paul McCartney’s “Penny Lane”

Q. What is your all-time favorite Monkees’ song?
A. “Daydream Believer.” (He mentioned that he has a new version recorded!)

Q. What is your all-time favorite movie?
A. “The Great Escape” with Steve McQueen.

All in all it was a very upbeat, fun interview, ending with Harmon and
Evans asking Davy to let them know when he opens the “museum” so they can

VH1 Documentary ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ Looks at the History of the
Music Video

Four-Hour Documentary Which Premieres May 8th Highlights the Performers,
Producers and Directors Who Helped Shape Music Video into a Unique Art Form

NEW YORK, April 10 /PRNewswire/ — It all began 25 years ago, when the
marriage of two of modern culture’s most expressive art forms — music
recording and filmmaking — gave birth to the music video. Now, after an
entire generation has grown up on music videos, they are still considered to
be one of America’s hottest forms of entertainment and a monitor of our
society that shows us what is cool — for better or worse.

“Video Killed The Radio Star” is a fast-paced, four-part documentary that
takes an in-depth look at the evolution of the music video, an art form
that has become so powerful that it has changed the face of music,
television, fashion, movies, advertising and even lifestyles. The first
hour-long installment of “Video Killed the Radio Star,” premieres on Monday,
May 8 at 10:00 PM ET/PT and concludes on Thursday, May 11.

“Video Killed the Radio Star” spotlights historic and significant video
clips from Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Queen, TLC, Janet
Jackson, R.E.M., Marilyn Manson and hundreds more. The documentary also
features exclusive interviews with the artists and directors themselves, who
discuss their groundbreaking clips and tell the behind-the-scenes stories of
some of the most influential and memorable videos of all time.

Artists interviewed include Will Smith, Mary J. Blige, Bono, Sugar Ray,
Moby, Robert Palmer, Holly Johnson (Frankie Goes to Hollywood), Adam Ant,
David Byrne, Trevor Horne (The Buggles), Bob Casale, Laurie Anderson, Toni
Basil and RuPaul, plus top video directors and industry heavyweights such as
Bob Pittman, John Landis, Clive Davis, Michael Nesmith, David Mallett, Bob
Giraldi, Tim Pope, Russell Mulcahy and Matthew Rolston.

“Video Killed the Radio Star” dates the dawn of the modern music video to
1975, when the British TV show “Top of the Pops” introduced a film from
Queen, who found that their new song, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” would be
impossible to re-create on stage. But the music video’s spirit is a direct
descendant of the original splicing of rock and film in movies like
“Blackboard Jungle” and “Jailhouse Rock” from the ’50s, as well as the
Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night” and a proliferation of ’60s television shows.
“Some of them were great,” notes David Byrne, “And some of them were kind of

In 1981, MTV debuted on cable TV, changing the course of the music industry
by beaming pop stars into the home 24 hours a day. At first, small
production budgets spurred music video directors to create innovative and
unconventional techniques.

In the 1980s, recalls Adam Ant, “There were no rules, it hadn’t really got
too big yet.” Later, when the sales power of the format became known to
record executives, big budgets followed, allowing artists and filmmakers to
experiment further with dazzling effects, animation and more.

“Video Killed The Radio Star” is a World of Wonder Production for VH1. The
special is executive produced and directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy
Barbato. Lauren Zalaznick is Executive Producer for VH1. Debbie Searle is

Award-winning directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato are the creators of
World of Wonder, an independent, multi-media production company responsible
for the recent Sundance smash “The Eyes of Tammy Faye,” HBO’s critically
acclaimed “Juror Number 5” and the Emmy Award winning “Party Monster.” World
of Wonder is the production team behind VH1’s “The RuPaul Show.”

VH1 produces and programs a wide variety of music-based series, specials,
live events and acquisition-based programming that keep viewers in touch
