September 12, 1966
The Monkees television show premieres on NBC. Producers Bert Schneider and Bob Rafelson decided to emulate the zany, madcap humor of the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night for the small screen. When they placed an ad in Variety for four Folk and Rock musicians to appear in a TV series, over 400 applied for the job, including Stephen Stills, John Sebastian, Harry Nilsson and Danny Hutton (later of Three Dog Night), but as it turned out, only one of the four winners, guitarist and songwriter Michael Nesmith, actually saw the ad. Micky Dolenz (who would play drums), Davy Jones (who would sing), and Peter Tork (bass) found out about the opportunity from other sources. Nesmith and Tork had experience in the Folk scene; Dolenz and Jones were primarily actors, although Nesmith and Jones had already made some obscure solo recordings. Some have claimed that Charles Manson also applied, but he was in prison at the time and would not be paroled until March 21, 1967. The series ran for a total of 58 episodes.

The Elvis Presley boxed set “Peace in the Valley – The Complete Gospel Recordings” was released on LP as a limited release and then generally as CD set.

Johnny Cash, “The Man in Black” who became a towering figure in American music with such hits as “Folsom Prison Blues”, “I Walk the Line”, and “A Boy Named Sue”, died at the age of 71. During his career, Cash won 11 Grammys, most recently in 2003, when “Give My Love To Rose” earned him honors as Best Male Country Vocal Performance. He also notched fourteen number 1 Country music hits. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1980 and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992. Two of his most popular albums were recorded live at Folsom Prison in 1968 and at San Quentin in 1969. Many people wrongly thought he had served prison time himself. He never did, although he did spend the odd night in jail during his youth and battled addictions to pills on and off throughout his life.
Lisa Marie Presley performed on “The Ellen Degeneres Show.”
