July 29th

The Monkees' scheduled appearance at Olympia Stadium in Detroit, MI, is cancelled due to rioting and an enforced curfew.  The show is rescheduled for an afternoon appearance on August 13th.  

With nothing else to do, the group flies into Chicago, which is their next scheduled tour stop.  By 3:30 that afternoon they are in the studio and on the air on WLS Radio.   

That night they hang out with members of Buffalo Springfield and The Association ... and then pay a visit to Hugh Hefner's Playboy mansion.  

The Byrds appear on American Bandstand
