Monkee-Raider Bash

“Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees—and we really like to monkey around! In other words, we Monkees are always up to some sort of mischief. But we must admit, we’ve never been quite as wild—or had as much fun—as the day we teamed up with Mark, Paul and the Raiders (five other kooky cats) in their ABC-TV show Happening! In case you missed that show, come along now and we’ll all tell you just what went on—”

  • Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz
  • Paul Revere, Micky Dolenz, Freddy Weller, Keith Allison, Davy Jones
    MICKY: “It all started when we decided to have a jam session—combining the musical talents of the Raiders and the Monkees!”
  • Paul Revere, Davy Jones, Mark Lindsay, Keith Allison, Freddy Weller
    MARK: “No, folks, this is not a new dance step—Davy just got a little (?) carried away! I mean, he really got into the music!”
  • Micky Dolenz, Mark Lindsay, Keith Allison, Freddy Weller, Davy Jones
    MICKY: “But all’s well that ends well—or so they say! And at least the guitar (and Davy) wound up in one piece!”
  • Mark Lindsay, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith
    MARK: “Then, out of nowhere, this monster—who looked like something from Planet Of The Apes—appeared!”
  • Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Mark Lindsay, Paul Revere, Micky Dolenz
    PAUL: “Hold it a minute, fellas! What do you mean monster from nowhere? It’s your trusty (and sometimes nutty) leader—Uncle Paul!”
  • Micky Dolenz, Mark Lindsay, Joe Correro, Jr., Paul Revere, Keith Allison
    JOE: “We finally recovered from all that horsing around and had decided to be dead serious—when all of a sudden we noticed that Davy had disappeared!!
  • Davy Jones
    DAVY: “Fear not, oh, faithful friends have returned! I just turned in my Honda for a new set of mini-wheels!”
  • Micky Dolenz, Paul Revere, Mark Lindsay, Davy Jones, Keith Allison
    MARK: “We then decided to try that jam-session idea again. Davy promised to stay cool—if we gave him a banana (?)!”,
  • Mark Lindsay, Freddy Weller, Davy Jones, Keith Allison
    FREDDY: “That worked out for a while—well, a short while—then our very own Keith Allison decided to act up!”
  • Freddy Weller, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mark Lindsay, Paul Revere, Keith Allison
    KEITH: “Well, somebody had to finish Davy’s banana! You know how it is—Monkee see, Monkee do—or should I say—Raider see, Raider do?
  • Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith, Davy Jones, Freddy Weller, Mark Lindsay, Paul Revere, Joe Correro, Jr., Keith Allison
    ALL: “Here we are for the grand finale. It was fun joining forces, and we had a lot of laughs. We’ll have to do it again sometime!”
