March 25th

This week's edition of TV Guide examines the future of "Batman", which has recently added the Batgirl character trying to spice things up.  Incredibly, it is still airing twice a week … but the novelty is pretty much over.

The Who make their first US live appearance at The RKO 58th Street Theater in New York City.  Later this year, they'll enjoy their first tour of America as the opening act for, of all people, Herman's Hermits, before taking the stage, along with Jimi Hendrix and many others, at The Monterey Pop Festival in June.  (Also on the bill that night at the RKO … Cream, who wouldn't have their first big US hit until nearly a year later.  It was all part of a Murray The K concert extravaganza featuring a total of six bands that ran over the 1967 Easter Weekend.) 

After already topping the US charts for the past seven weeks, "More Of The Monkees", The Monkees' second album, is finally released in the UK.  That evening Davy Jones appears on The Miss Teen International Pageant, broadcast from The Hollywood Palladium on ABC Television.
