    Why the Beatles Loved… the Monkees? With Special Guest Andrew Sandoval

    Why the Beatles Loved… the Monkees? With Special Guest Andrew Sandoval

    The creators behind the Monkees’ hit television series (and the band itself) hoped to establish an American Beatles - although the band’s critics would often refer to them as the “Pre-Fab Four.” While much of the music community despised the Monkees, the Beatles… actually loved them. Join us as we explore why with Grammy-nominated producer, historian, and author Andrew Sandoval, whose new book chronicles the Monkees’ entire career from the birth of Peter Tork in 1942 to the very last day of 1970.

Love this podcast!

It’s a very fun and interesting podcast, it makes me feel like I’m in the conversation. I like how the conversation is a lot more casual than some other podcasts, in which I feel like I’m being lectured. I also enjoy the book refs they give out. It’s nice to have content from people who are just as obsessed with the Beatles as I am.

One of the very best Beatles shows

Still one of the best beatle pods around. Nice to see younger generations love the Beatles as much as us older fans. You ladies have great topics and really know your stuff.
Love your work. Please keep it up.
