happy new year to monkees fans everywhere.

a tv programme shown here last week celebrated ’40 Years of Coronation Street’ and

featured a very brief clip of Davy playing Colin Lomax in 1961. He was shown

talking to actress Violet Carson, who played Ena Sharples, in a brief (4

seconds) scene. Disappointing that the clip used was so short, but pleasing

to know that the film is still in the archives at Granada TV, Manchester. I

am planning to enquire with Granada how much film of Davy they have, and if

there is any chance it will be available for purchase or loan, to show at a

fan club convention, for example. I will let you know of any developments.

another (completely unrelated) programme next saturday (6th) will feature an

interview with Micky. ‘The 100 Greatest No 1 Singles’ is on Channel 4 at 8pm

GMT. I think we can expect Micky to be talking about ‘I’m A Believer’, the

Monkees only UK No 1. Other contributors in the 4 hour programme include

Yoko Ono, Lionel Richie, Bob Geldof and Smokey Robinson.

Hi guys


More on Mystic Green’s posting about the Daydream Believer’s Movie showing on Sky MovieMax.  It’s also being shown on the 19th and 24th January – so UK fans have 3 chances to see it.


There’s also a little “blurb” in the Sky magazine about it. Its actually listed as the editors choice for that day and is reviewed as follows…”this sounds like a really bad idea. Surprisingly though, this biopic of the original boy band captures the mood of the era and the youthful energy of Americas very own fab
