From the Saturday Night Oldies Yahoo Group:

Mark Simone mentioned to a caller, no 80’s, “this isn’t WCBS-FM”.
Followed up with “I’m a Believer”

FYI, Micky Dolenz (who has visited S.N.O. twice) will be on the WCBS-FM Rad=
Greats next Sunday, February 3rd @ 7 PM EST. Yes, he’ll be up against
the Super Bowl.




Our popular TOMMY BOYCE AND BOBBY HART Series is going out again right
around the first of February. It will be updated THIS time around
with comments from BOBBY HART himself, who has read through our piece
and made comments and corrections along the way. In that he’s
currently working on a book of his OWN right now, documenting his
amazing career, this should prove to be a pretty timely piece.
(Consider it the equivalent of the director’s cut commentary dvd!!!)

Anyway, I thought you might want to invite any of your Monkees.Net
readers who are not already on our FORGOTTEN HITS Mailing List to drop
me an email so that they don’t miss this important piece.

By the way, THE MONKEES received MORE write-in nominations than ANY
other artist for The 2008 Hit Parade Hall Of Fame Ballot … fans now
need to go to the website and cast their votes FOR REAL!!! (I believe
they’re a shoo-in for this award … but let’s leave NOTHING to

Thanks so much!

AP ‘Daydream Believer’ songwriter dies

SAN DIEGO – John Stewart, who wrote The Monkees’ hit “Daydream
Believer” and became a well-known figure in the 1960s folk music
revival as a member of The Kingston Trio, has died, according to the
band’s Web site. He was 68.

Stewart suffered a massive stroke or brain aneurysm and died early
Saturday at a San Diego hospital, the band announced on its official
Web site.

“The world has lost one of its best men, but a man who lived well and
made many people happy with his love, his wit and his music,” the
announcement said.

Stewart joined The Kingston Trio in 1961, three years after the band
released its version of an old folk song, “Tom Dooley,” that went on
to become a hit. Stewart replaced the band’s founder Dave Guard, who
had left to pursue a new musical direction.

Stewart spent six years leading the group, during which time the band
recorded 13 albums, according to its Web site.

After the trio disbanded in 1967, Stewart went on to an acclaimed solo
career that included recording more than 40 albums.

Stewart’s wife Buffy and children were at his side when he died, the
Web site said. Plans had not been announced for memorial services.

It’s been a while since Fort Lauderdale resident Davy Jones was hip
(if indeed his former band the Monkees ever was), but that doesn’t
mean he doesn’t have good ears. Jones staves off old age these days by
listening to tunes that are at least new to him. “I’m mostly into
music from the ’60s and the ’80s,” he says. “I actually missed the
’80s the first time around, so I’m catching up finally and listening
to lots of music from that decade.” Jones kindly gave us an annotated
list of albums on his radar:

Sir Paul McCartney, Memory Almost Full

“I got used to it after a while. He’s getting older, but I especially
like the song ‘Dance Tonight.’ “

Kenny Chesney, Just Who I Am: Poems and Pirates

“I kept hearing so much about the album, I figured I’d go out and buy
it. I like it, but I’m thinking, Country Artist of the Year?! There’s
more meat on Willie Shoemaker’s whip than there is on Chesney’s whole

James Blunt, All the Lost Souls

“It was a bit twee, but he’s got great songs on there.”

Norah Jones, Not Too Late

“My favorite artist of the year was Norah Jones by far. My grandchild
was born to Norah Jones’ music =97 that probably says a lot about me.
I’m old, man. I’m at the point where, when I walk up a flight of
stairs, by the time I get to the top, I forget why I went there and
walk back down again.”
