Radio Wowsville 3/4/12: A Little Bit Davy

This week's Wowsville is dedicated to Davy Jones of the Monkees, who passed away last week at the age of 66. We played as many of our favorite Davy/Monkees tracks as the RIAA will allow, and gently remembered the diminutive Brit who swooned the masses. For more on the late teen idol, his life and (yes) his ties to Virginia, click here.

The illustration is by our good buddy Pat McGeehan, a true daydream believer. It's an old sketch from 1981, he says, finished around the same time he purchased a used copy of "More of the Monkees" Thanks Pat!
