The first Monkees music show was broadcast on American TV. This was a lousy attempt to combine “the music and humour of The Beatles with… the music and humour of The Beatles.” NBC advertised for “Folk and rock musicians – singers for acting roles in a new TV series. Running parts for four insane boys, aged 17-21.” The four lucky winners were Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork, Mike Nesmith and Davy Jones. Jones was the only British bloke, and sang his songs in Manchester… I wouldn’t normally bother telling you all of this, but for one amazing coincidence – he had previously appeared on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ in ’64 (the same show as The Beatles) as The Artful Dodger in ‘Oliver!’
