**The New Year**
Happy New Year to all the Monkees fans around the world! Looking
forward into 2004, they guys seem to be keeping their schedules
busy. Starting on January 6, Micky Dolenz will be performing
in “Aida” on Broadway as Zoser. He was so successful playing the
role in the touring production of the show earlier this year that
they asked him to continue on “The Great White Way!” You can buy
tickets here. Davy Jones will continue touring in the US throughout
the year & will visit the UK in March & April. A&E likes his weekly
series, “Meet The Royals,” so much that they have filmed a handful
of new episodes, so be sure to watch on Sunday nights. Peter Tork
has an upcoming tour of the east coast with his good friend, James
Lee Stanley, in January & February and is also expected to schedule
concerts with Shoe Suede Blues later in the year. Like he has for
the past couple of years, Michael Nesmith is going to stay home and
work on his many upcoming projects. His second novel, The American
Gene, is finished but is in need of a publisher. “Rays,” his long-
awaited solo album has also been taking up a lot of Nez’s time
lately. He’s been working hard on it & those at Videoranch who have
already heard some of it say it is amazing & totally unlike anything
he has done before. However, Nez insists he’s not ready to put it
out yet. I’ve been told that when “Rays” does finally get released,
Nez has been seriously thinking about going out on the road for a
short promotional tour.

**Monkees Up For TVLand Award**
The Monkees have been nominated for a 2004 TVLand Award! Davy won
last year for best TV appearance by a musician, and this
year “(Theme From) The Monkees” is one of the choices fans have to
pick from for best TV theme song! Place your vote for The Monkees as
often as you can at TVLand’s website!

**On TV**
Starz Cinema has added more airings of The Monkees movie, “Head,” on
January 2 at 8:15pm EST, January 15 at 7am EST, & January 21 at 10am
EST. For all upcoming airings of Davy hosting “Meet The Royals,”
click the “All Upcoming TV Appearances” link on the news page.

TV Museum Showcases History of Pop Music
Wed December 24, 2003 09:20 PM ET

By Carla Hay

NEW YORK (Billboard) – Al Green, James Brown, Britney Spears, Elvis
Presley and the Monkees are among the artists who will be featured
in the “American Pop” series presented by the Museum of Television
and Radio in New York and Los Angeles.

The two-month series — which begins Feb. 6 — will focus on pop
music’s history on television.

The first theme in the series is “Soul Survivors” featuring Green
and Brown. Other upcoming themes will be the music of Burt
Bacharach; the evolution of teen-idol pop with artists ranging from
Fabian, the Monkees and Spears; the first hour of MTV; and rare
footage of the Teenage Awards Music International (T.A.M.I.) Show,
an all-star concert filmed in 1964 and featuring the Rolling Stones,
the Supremes, Marvin Gaye and the Beach Boys.

The museum will also have a Beatles TV and radio showcase
commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Fab Four’s first U.S.
visit. Titled “It Was Forty Years Ago Today: The Beatles in
America,” the exhibit will also open Feb. 6.

This was in the December 22nd “Page 6” section of the NY Post:

New Recruit
Hey, hey, he’s not smoking! Former Monkee Micky Dolenz went bananas
when Des O’Brien, owner of Langan’s on West 47th Street, asked him
to sign the New York Night Life/United Restaurant & Tavern Owners
Asociation’s joint petition that seeks justifiable amendments to
Mayor Bloomberg’s draconian anti-smoking law.. Dolenz, a vehement
anti-smoker who supports the ban, got into a “sometimes testy”
exchange with O’Brien. But by the end of the night, Dolenz was
sufficiently persuaded — or exhausted — by the Irishman’s
arguments, and he agreed to sign.
