In memory of Davy Jones, host Robin Milling revisits Milling About with Micky Dolenz who reminisced about The Monkees from the first audition to what made them such a cultural phenomenon.

Jones, who left us too soon at the age of 66, once told Robin in a 2005 interview how he'd like to be remembered. He said, 'I don’t want to be remembered as a Monkee or as the Artful Dodger or as an actor or as a singer or as a songwriter. I want to be remembered by each person differently. They all have something they can tell about and things we’ve been intimate over whether it be conversation or whether it be a kiss. I want to retire unknown and anonymous and just fade away. I want to be on a cruise ship or something and when I know it I’ll be overboard before anybody knows and be eaten by a whale. I’ll be back somewhere on some beach somewhere. When my kids go to the ocean I want them to know I’m there. So that would be kind of a romantic (legacy) in my way.'
