So long to a legend from the youth. Davy Jones, the positve lead singer of the classic group The Monkees passed away at 66...
As Chuck from The Morning Point said "It's not often I get to hear about a celebrity passing and spend the day smiling. I did just that with great memories of an honest man who kept it clean and positive, that was Davy." , says Chuck
Listeners added comments like "...he was an entertainer from a time when the business was less of a business and all about the entertainment." and "Davy will be missed...he was always so positive to watch and you didn't have to worry about the TV show's content".
Davy was 66 and lived a full life as a member of The Monkees and a highly generous individual noted for his benevolence and kind spirit.
Woo Woo reported the news first in Hampton Roads yesterday, and immediately the audience of 94.9 The Point responded with posts on The Point Facebook Page with stories and great memories of how they grew up with Davy and The Monkees.
"The episode of The Brady Bunch was my biggest memory of Davy", says Woo Woo from The Morning Point. "He was like the Justin Beiber of our parents youth and a sweet man", she added.
Of course, we would be remiss if we did not have some music from The Band we came to know in Technicolor....
So long, Davy! Thanks so much for the smiles and great memories.
To your family and friends, we are certain they share these positive memories of your contributions not only to entertainment, but, the character we all so admired in the legends such as yourself.
