On this day in 1966, “The Monkees” debuted on NBC, starring a four-member rock group picked from nearly 500 applicants in open auditions. Rejects included Paul Willaims and Steven Stills, but not, as falsely rumored, Charles Manson.

- Charles Manson, ofcourse, went on to form “The Manson Family Singers” and made a killing!  


Have a great day and I’ll see you back here Tuesday!
