[Description by Curt Lundgren]

. . . KDWB belongs to The Monkees . . .

I had decided to tape some Bobby Davis on KDWB from Midnight to 1:00, when out of the blue, KD launches their "Monkees at Secret City" coup. The Monkees were due to play the St. Paul Auditorium that day, and the station arranged a complete remote setup in their hotel rooms.

This exhibit is 'scoped, and covers the setup, the welcoming at Twin Cities International Airport (around 12:15 am), and highlites of the group being jocks.

Listen for the Mickey Dolenz segment, which was 'way into the wee hours, when he pokes at the critics and lauds the Beatles for being the true creative force in Pop.

Later that fall, the station reprised moments of the Monkee broadcasts in 2-3 minute segments during the Arbitron.
