Yes! They said it would never happen! They said we'd never last! They said you couldn't buy peanut butter in large, industrial 68-pound drums! But we're here to say "YES WE CAN!"
Thats right! We've reached double digits!
And, how better to celebrate our big ten-oh, than with this special episode, one that features an exclusive full-length interview with long-time Monkees fan, Fred Velez?
Fred lets loose, telling us all about his early days as a fan (Fred is a fabulous 1st generation fanatic), his days helping organize and forming the earliest Monkees conventions (complete with behind-the-scenes tales), meeting Mike, Peter, Davy and Micky (singularly, and as our favorite group), and so much more!
Fred is not just a jovial gentleman and sensational storyteller, he is also an awesome author! His book, A LITTLE BIT ME, A LITTLE BIT YOU, THE MONKEES FROM A FAN'S PERSPECTIVE, is a fabulous must-have read for any Monkees fan, of any age! In our incredible interview, you'll hear all the tales behind so many stories in his book!
