MONKEE IN THE NEWS

NOTE: The Monkees brand of zany humor and light folk/pop music revolutionized television, and they remain very popular to this day, so much so that even decades after their dissolution, references to them can be found in mass media all over the world. Here's where I'll list news items from television, radio, and newspaper articles all around the world that make reference to the Monkees.   Also, I'll list any updates to the site here, so check back weekly!
