THUNDER BAY PRESS CELEBRATES THE
40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MONKEES WITH NEW BOOK

THE MONKEES: THE DAY-BY DAY STORY OF THE 60s TV POP SENSATION

San Diego, CA�Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the formation of the popular 60s sensation The Monkees, Thunder Bay Press proudly announces the publication of The Monkees: The day-by-day story of the 60s TV pop sensation (July 2005) by the acknowledged expert on the band, Andrew Sandoval.

Revealing a remarkably rich and detailed story, The Monkees takes the reader day-by-day through the band�s short but explosive career, bringing to life recording sessions, concert performances, filming commitments, and other public appearances, including encounters with The Beatles, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix and other key figures of the decade.

The book draws upon exclusive interviews with each member of the group and boasts a wealth of photographs, many previously unpublished. Readers will follow the exciting years from 1965 to 1970 and learn the story of one of the most successful pop bands of the 1960s, whose fame began with the groundbreaking NBC television show, which in turn led to a remarkable four consecutive Number 1 albums and six Top 10 singles � including �Last Train To Clarksville�, �I�m A Believer�, �A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You�, and �Daydream Believer�. Their celebrity then reached a whole new audience in the 1980s when MTV began re-airing the TV show. The Monkees continue to attract a cult following today and boast impressive sales for recent reissues.

Andrew Sandoval is a music historian, consultant for Rhino Records and Monkees insider who has worked with the Beach Boys, Everly Brothers, the Band, Elvis Costello, The Kinks and more. For the last 15 years, Sandoval has supervised nearly every release by The Monkees. He lives in Los Angeles, California.

The current issue of Goldmine announces an upcoming Monkees article —

“Coming to Goldmine

The Monkees

The story of the Monkees is one of the most extraordinary in rock
history. Put together in the 1960s to cash in on the success of the
Beatles, they appeared in a genuinely funny TV show that took its zany
cue from the Beatle’s film “A Hard Day’s Night”. Simultaneously, they
issued records boasting the top session players and songwriters of the
day. however, the band members tired of being puppets and instigated a
palace revolution that saw them calling the shots. Goldmine talks
exclusively to Monkes singer Micky Dolenz about those heady days when
the world went ape for the Monkees.

From: “Aaron Handy III”

Here we go again…

“I will send you to the Russian front!”

That was the threat made by General Burkhalter to Colonel Klink on
many episodes of Hogan’s Heroes.

Hollywood character actor Leon Askin, whose decades-long career
included portraying Burkhalter in the 1960s sitcom, died Friday at a
hospital in his native Vienna. He was 97. The cause of his death was
not disclosed.

Like Werner Klemperer, who played Klink, and John Banner, who
appeared as Sergeant Schultz, Askin was a Jewish refugee from the
Nazis.

Askin appeared in over 50 films, as well as in theater and TV. He
supplied various voices for two 1982 TV series: Hanna-Barbera’s
Scooby and Scrappy-Doo and Ruby-Spears Productions’ Puppy’s New
Adventures.

The son of a salesman, he was born Leo Aschkenasy on September 18,
1907, which coincided with Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish
calendar. When he was nine years old, he recited a 17-stanza eulogy
for Emperor Francis Joseph in front of the city hall of Vienna’s
ninth district.

Askin was the student of dramatists Max Reinhardt and Louise Dumont.
In the 1930s, Askin was a cabaret performer and directed the
political cabaret ABC, discovering Jura Soyfer.

In order to escape Nazi persecution, he fled first to France, then
to the United States. He met Erwin Piscator, the founder of the
school of Epic Realism, in 1938, and worked with him for the next
three decades. During the Second World War, he served in the U.S.
Army.

During the Second World War, Askin’s parents (including his blind
mother) were taken to the ghetto/concentration camp of
Theresienstadt in Czechoslovakia, which was run by the SS. They were
later murdered at the concentration camp in Lublin, Poland.

Often portraying the “funny villain,” Askin performed alongside such
luminaries as James Cagney, Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Doris
Day and Peter Ustinov. “Here comes my professional!”, director Billy
Wilder exclaimed on the set of his 1961 movie One, Two, Three, in
which Askin portrayed Peripetchikoff.

Live-action work for Disney included a guest appearance as Anton
Rubinstein in “The Peter Tschaikovsky Story,” a 1959 episode of
Disneyland, and the role of Dr. Gottlieb in the 1973 feature film
The World’s Greatest Athlete (1973).

In the 1952 Bing Crosby-Bob Hope comedy Road to Bali, Askin made an
early film appearance as Ramayana. Among the other movies where he
was a character actor — comedic or dramatic — were The Robe (1953,
as Abidor), director Fritz Lang’s Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse
(1962, as Flocke), What Did You Do In The War, Daddy? (1966, as Col.
Kastorp), Hammersmith Is Out (1972, as Dr. Krodt) and Airplane II:
The Sequel (1982, as the Moscow anchorman).

Besides Hogan’s Heroes, he was a regular on 1956’s The Charles
Farrell Show (as Pierre the Chef). Guest appearances included the
1950s series Adventures Of Superman, in which he appeared as Joseph
Ferdinand and Prime Minister Vallen. He was Peter Minuit and Von
Reinbein in two episodes of the mid-1960s comedy My Favorite
Martian, and Marvin Elom and Machina in two episodes of the spy
series The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

He impersonated both Karl Marx and Martin Luther in various episodes
of PBS’s Meeting Of Minds.

His stage performances included Faust and Shylock on Broadway, which
he also directed, and Othello in Hamburg.

Unlike many expatriates, Askin returned to Austria in 1994, where he
continued his film, TV and stage career, receiving several honors.
Earlier, during the postwar years, he had appeared in numerous
Austrian and West German movies and TV productions.

His autobiography, Quietude And Quest (written with C. Melvin
Davidson), was published by Ariadne Press in 1989.

To Monkee fans, Askin is remembered for his role as Nikolai,
Druvanian National Ballet coach/master spy, from Season-2 Monkees
episode “The Card-Carrying Red Shoes.”
