This time, Alan and Al (wait for it) dive into the 1987 Monkees reunion LP, POOL IT! Just how bad was it? Did it come too late in the Monkees revival period? What were the best songs? The worst? And, most importantly, who is "Rico?"
Plus: The high-charting 1968 Monkees single TAPIOCA TUNDRA is re-mixed, into a wild and disturbing new version, one you've not heard before!
And, part two of our exclusive interview with the talented Coco Dolenz, as she discusses her famous family, Micky's CIRCUS BOY fame vs. his MONKEES fame, growing up in showbiz, her solo work, and more!
Plus: Humor! Sound effects! Star Trek! Music! Jokes! Editorializing!
