Dolenz will join the star studded weekend line-up on smoothfm from Sunday.
Micky Dolenz said: “I’m flattered and honoured that I was asked to join the ranks of some really incredibly talented people doing the music specials on smoothfm”.
Since forming back in the 60’s The Monkees have released countless international hits that have featured on the smoothfm playlist including Daydream Believer and I’m a Believer, performed over 20 live tours and have sold over 75 million albums worldwide. At their peak in 1967, the band outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined.
To celebrate their 50th anniversary of The Monkees’ television series and the release of their debut single Last Train To Clarksville, the band have released a new album Good Times! The album features tracks written by some of the best songwriters in the world, including Neil Diamond, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, Andy Partridge of XTC as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller.
To coincide with the album launch, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are bringing The Monkees anniversary tour to Australia, playing the Palais Theatre in Melbourne and the State Theatre in Sydney in December.
Micky Dolenz joins smoothfm’s weekend line-up with Melissa Doyle hosting Saturday and Sunday mornings from 6am, Richard Wilkins from 10am, David Campbell from 1pm and now Micky Dolenz will be heard on smoothfm 95.3 Sydney, smoothfm 91.5 Melbourne and on smoothfm DAB+ on Sundays from 4pm-5pm.
