Celebrate the Season parade

How’s this for an odd group of Celebrate the
Season stars: Zachary Quinto, Peter Tork and
Santa Claus. They join mascots, musical acts and
floats carrying entertainers and sports celebs as
part of the annual Celebrate the Season Parade
that marches through Fifth Avenue, Downtown, from
9-11 p.m. Saturday. Along with the WPXI reporters
checking in for the parade telecast, Pittsburgher
Quinto — Sylar on NBC’s “Heroes” and Spock in
the upcoming “Star Trek” film — and Tork —
one-fourth of the TV-made ’70s boy band, the
Monkees — will help Pittsburgh kick off the season.

New Deluxe Editions and Exclusive 7″ Vinyl Single Now Available

After nearly a yearlong wait, we are finally
ready to unleash the latest of our restored
Monkees reissues: Headquarters and Pisces,
Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. These two 1967
classics are the albums where The Monkees came
into their own as musicians and songwriters, and
each has been expanded with a full CD of bonus material.

And while supplies last, if you pre-order both
Monkees reissues you will get a FREE limited
edition vinyl 7″ single! Housed in a snazzy
Colgemsesque picture sleeve, both songs are
exclusive to this release. “I Didn’t Know You Had
It In You Sally” was taped for the band in
February ’67, but Micky didn’t lay his vocal on
the track till ’69. The flipside is an alternate
mix of “Daydream Believer” before the addition of
brass and strings. It features a cool extended
ending. We’re only making 2,500 units of the
single, and the orders are flying in – so act now!

Remember, you can’t get this exclusive
collectible in stores — but you can at 3400 W. Olive Ave., Burbank CA 91505

Just wanted to alert everyone that Davy was on
The O’Reilly Factor on June 14th on FoxNews. He
was on to discuss efforts by Rolling Stone
magazine to keep The Monkees out of the Rock ‘n
Roll Hall of Fame. They showed lots of clips
from the show and the guys on tour as Bill
O’Reilly interviewed Davy. Davy commented on how
The Monkees performed with leading 1960s
musicians and how they were part of the culture
at the time. O’Reilly pointed out that they have
sold 65 million records and that American Idol is
doing the very same sort of auditions today to
find talent that were done to form The
Monkees. O’Reilly said he thought The Monkees
should be in the Hall of Fame and that he was
going to do what he could to make that happen.

Here’s a brief summary if you missed it from Bill O’Reilly’s website:

Back of Book Segment
Looking back at The Monkees

Guest: Davey Jones

Rolling Stone magazine is leading an effort to
ban the Monkees, the made-for-TV band, from the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Former Monkees singer
Davey Jones sounded rather nonchalant about the
controversy. “I haven’t really thought much about
it. As far as being a legitimate group, I don’t
really know what that means. But the Monkees
withstood the test of time.” The Factor contended
that Jones and his mates deserve to be enshrined.
“You guys sold 65-million records, and many
groups in the Hall of Fame don’t come close to
that. You were a phenomenon and people still hum
your tunes, so you guys have to be in there.”
