When Peter Tork died, I remembered him fondly from having been on the show a few times, including in-studio where he played a few tunes ("Pleasant Valley Sunday") and took some calls. He was a great guy. But I couldn't find a copy of the show.
Leave it to the Internet.
A podcaster and Monkees fan in Texas had my conversation with Peter from 2005 and posted it! I've grabbed it - and it's here in its entirety.
