In December 1967, FAVE magazine asked fans why they liked The Monkees. The winner got a chance to meet the Monkees and have the Monkees chose a new mod wardrobe for them. Now while I can't guarantee a meeting with a Monkee for submitting YOUR reason for loving or liking The Monkees, I can guarantee that I'll put it up on the site and you'll be the envy of all your friends. Anyway, if you want to share with the world why YOU love The Monkees, send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org. Hop to it, fool.
