NOTE: The Monkees were a hit on the
radio before they ever made a splash on the
small screen. And their sunny, effervescent
pop - an almost volatile blend of styles, were
both a product of, and looking forward to, several
different genres of music that followed.
Using the modern-day miracle of Spotify
streaming music, I'll feature solo and group
efforts, as well as other artists who were
influential or influenced by the poppy, sometimes
subversive music which The Monkees perfected.
