Here’s a piece of news just sent to me tonight by Jeff Gehringer:

The American Cinematheque, a film preservation group with its own theater on
Hollywood Blvd, is having a “Mods and Rockers” film festival in a few
weeks. Among the ’60s films they’ll show is the Monkees’ “33 1/3
Revolutions Per Monkee” TV special, plus the unaired pilot. Micky Dolenz
will be in attendance to discuss the project after the screening. The
Monkees event is July 2 at 2 pm, at Grauman’s Egyptian Theater, 6712
Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, CA, and you can buy tickets in advance at the
box office. Also, on the evening of July 2, Micky will take part in a 60’s
Tea party concert—that’s a separate event with a different set of
instructions for buying tickets. The web site for all the information is

For those of you who have access to BBC Radio 4, you might be interested
in tuning in to the July 12th broadcast of the comedy panel show “I’m
Sorry I Haven’t A Clue” (which airs at 6:30 p.m. UK time and repeats on
Sunday, June 18th at noon). Friends who were at the taping for this
episode report that the Monkees song “I’m a Believer” was used in a
round of “Pick Up Song”. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the
show, I’ll explain that this round involves one of the contestants
singing along with a recording of a song. The volume of the recording
is then turned down while the contestant continues to the sing, in an
attempt to be in time with the recording when the volume is eventually
turned back up. Since the contestants are all comedians the results of
the game are usually quite funny. The performance of “I’m a Believer”
was especially amusing, given the fact that the live audience at the
taping spontaneously joined in by providing the “da doo doo, doo doo’s”
between the lines.

Here’s hoping that this round is included in the actual broadcast!
