CBS Oldies KRTH (K-EARTH 101)/LOS ANGELES’ morning show host GARY BRYAN has started a petition to get THE MONKEES into the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. The first person to sign the petition was Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame songwriter and artist BRIAN WILSON of the BEACH BOYS. While THE MONKEES already have a star on the HOLLYWOOD Walk of Fame, they have yet to join the honorees of the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. Their TV show, "THE MONKEES," aired 58 episodes during 1966-67 and left a lasting impression on a generation with a series of hits including "Last Train to Clarksville," "I’m A Believer" and "Daydream Believer."
BRYAN noted, "THE MONKEES are a significant part of rock n’ roll history. The huge response from their fans is not surprising since they sold 150 million albums and toured worldwide as a real band."
