And then watch your email for special "Bonus" material (like THIS one!!!) ... as well as other special features not related to 1967 from time to time, too.
Be blessed my friend.

Fun reading guys! I'm plumbing my rusty 67 memory banks for some recollections.
Seems like fun ... Looks really fun.
Super to see that we made the initial edition, Kent; thank you!
Love You So Much by NC6 was a top 5 Hit in Milwaukee too. As was I Confess a year earlier.

This is Great! 1967 ... a super year to acknowledge! I'm liking it!
1967 wasn't without incident. Although we may romantically look back at it as "The Summer Of Love", we also experienced riots that literally ran from coast to coast as well as a HUGE increase in war protests.
>>>The Monkees' second LP, "More Of The Monkees", was still a few weeks away from release at this point ... but you're right, "She" (the lead-off track) was the most-requested songs for WEEKS on both Art Roberts' 10:00 countdown AND Jim Stagg's afternoon most-requested show over at WCFL, too. (kk)
For more on the whole Monkees / Valleri thing, read our highly acclaimed, EXCELLENT piece on Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart ...
As a deejay in Florida, I recall we played "Mary Mary" off of a cartridge after "I'm A Believer" dropped out of our survey.
A serious reworking to be sure! But proof that Linda Ronstadt and The Stone Poneys weren't the only ones paying attention to Mike Nesmith's songwriting efforts. (kk)
I was looking at the first top 10 of the new year.
#5 - That's Life - Frank Sinatra
#6 - Sugar Town - Nancy Sinatra
When was the last time father and daughter placed back to back in the top 10?
Too bad Somethin' Stupid didn't come in at #7.
It was a hit later in the year.
I will play these songs in Larry's Jukebox.
The 1967 postings have been great. I am looking forward to working in highlights from this week in 1967 as an hourly feature on my Those Were The Days program Saturday nights this year.

We certainly can and will get you as a guest on the show. It'll be fun to talk about 1967 music in general! :-)
Excellent start to 1967 Revisited ... when do you sleep ?
I’m having a little trouble with the fact that, assuming you are a Chicago Bulls fan, you selected the only year in the 60’s that the Boston Celtics didn’t win an NBA Championship (Hi Mark!)
I happened to be a proud owner of a 1967 Olds 442 and the assigned color by GM was ‘Saffron’, of course also identified as ‘Mellow Yellow’ ... perhaps a staid corporation's subliminally acknowledging the folk scene ha ha !
Thanks for all the work.
