Meet the team of Monkee Mania Radio
6 to 8 am/pm EST
I'm a big Monkees fan and collector. I first found out about them on Saturday mornings in the late 1960s-early 1970s. I really like both their music and the TV series. I started collecting their records in the late 1970s. I've worked for over 20 years in the broadcast industry, both in radio and TV. I've had the pleasure of working security for the Monkees when they received their Hollywood Walk of Fame star. I've also worked as Peter Tork's assistant and sold items for Davy Jones on a consignment basis for various record conventions and collectables shows. I've been a vendor at various Monkees conventions. I'm very happy to be a part of Monkee Mania Radio.
4 to 6 am/pm EST
Alan Williams was supposedly born on the final day of the 1950's. and there is no truth to the rumor, that his father was in the delivery room pounding on the Doctor, telling him that if this kid doesn't come out before midnight....you don't get paid!! lol He has always loved two things since he was a kid...radio and the Monkees. Unfortunately, the powers that be in terrestrial radio didn't share the belief in his on air skills...so he left the radio business after 6 frustrating years. He got the itch again, when in 2016, his longtime friend and Monkees fanatic Al Bigley convinced him to team up to create the Texas Prairie Chicken Home Companion Monkees Podcast, which ran for nearly four years. It was during the podcasting days, that the idea to create this radio station came to him, and after more than two years of planning, hard work, and not giving up...Monkee Mania Radio was born. If you like it, it was his idea...if not...oh well. You can hear Alan weekdays from 8-10am, and repeating again at 8pm. You'll get stories, irrelevant factoids...the occasional dialect, impression, and even some things that are mildly humorous,,,but...you'll always get his passion and love for the music of the Monkees and more...because Alan IS...MMR!
