I missed the last issue of Monkee Spectacular because when I got to the drug store they were sold out. Is there any way I can buy Monkee Spectacular #3?

Ever since I laid eyes on wonderful, fab, marvelous Davy Jones I never even looked at another boy. I defend the Monkees to anyone who doesn’t like them (though there aren’t many people who don’t) and I’ve hung Davy’s pictures everywhere, in my room.

Davy’s even good for my diet! I’ve lost 12 pounds since I started liking him!

I just love the way Peter acts. I think he’s much more mature than the other Monkees, and I try to copy him in everything I do. Keep up the good work, Peter!

I think Davy is very conceited! He’s always getting all the girls, and I think it’s gone to his head! The only way anybody could change my mind about Davy is to let me meet him!

I just want to know one thing: How come Davy Jones likes tall girls?

Dallas, Tex.

One day in our gym class at school we were playing volleyball and the teacher started playing the first Monkee album. When it came for my turn to serve Davy (my favorite Monkee) was singing, “I Wanna Be Free.” The surprise really came when I made 8 straight points for my team which helped us win the game.

We really are grateful to Davy!

Don’t you think that fans can be a little too nosy? For instance, in one of your Monkee Specs a girl asked if Micky Dolenz had dry, oily or normal hair. What is she going to do, buy him a bottle of shampoo? Anyway, who cares what his hair is like as long as he has some!

I can understand wanting to know all about a person, but this is ridiculous! Isn’t everyone, including a star, entitled to just a pinch of privacy?

Waterford, Conn.

Why did Samantha Juste have to wear a mini skirt to Rick Klein’s formal, beautiful wedding? She doesn’t have any respect for Micky, dressing that way! A pity she hasn’t got any taste—she’s pretty for a blonde.

Until the Monkees made the scene, I was different! They are so outasite that they’ve changed my life! Micky Dolenz is all I can think about! I’m even trying to flatten my nose like his!

In your Monkee Spectacular I saw a picture of a girl named Leah holding hands with Peter, and I started crying. I think she’s one of the prettiest girls I’ve ever seen, but the picture was a shock to me.

Then I stopped crying, realizing that it was stupid to feel that way, and I like Leah almost as much as Peter. Please print more pix of them together.

I’ve tried some of the Monkee recipes you have printed just out of curiosity. Peter’s “Fancy Fried Chicken”. and “Sassy Salad” were just great! Everybody should try cooking with the Monkees!

I tried making Mike’s Popovers from the Monkee recipes, and I must say they were delicious! They went in five minutes in my house. My brothers said, “You finally made something good!” When I told them it was Mike Nesmith’s recipe, they started to cough and sputter until I was ready to punch them!

Now I’m going to try the rest of the recipes. I’m sure they’ll be just as great!

If you happen to be a person who listens to the radio or record player a lot, here’s a message that concerns YOU! In a recent experiment it was discovered that people that use their ears a lot for these purposes can go deaf in about five years!

It seems as if a lot of us will be going deaf. BEWARE!!

I was watching the Emmy Awards on TV when the Monkees won their award, and I could have died! I was so happy I started crying. I was so excited I knocked over the chair I was sitting on and started running up and down the hall. Congratulations to four great guys!
