    JL Productions announced today that '60s music icons Davy Jones of The Monkees and Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits will co-host the latest installment of its popular My Music series this holiday season. It was recorded live in concert at Pittsburgh's Benedum Center earlier this year and is dedicated to the 1960s pioneers who forever changed our world through their music!

    Dubbed '60s Pop, Rock, Soul: My Music premieres Dec. 3, 2011 at 8 PM on PBS and airs throughout the December pledge period. Check local listings for stations and times.

    This brand-new concert special showcases some of the biggest hits of the AM radio era, including crowd-pleasing singalongs "Daydream Believer" (The Monkees' Davy Jones) and "Mr. Tambourine Man" (The Byrds' Roger McGuinn); frat rock anthems "Louie, Louie" (The Kingsmen) and "Devil With A Blue Dress" (Mitch Ryder); garage rock nuggets "Kicks" (Paul Revere & the Raiders) and "96 Tears" (Question Mark and the Mysterians); soulful sounds from Percy Sledge ("When A Man Loves A Woman") and Eddie Floyd ("Knock On Wood"); heavenly ballads from Eddie Holman ("Hey There Lonely Girl") and The Miracles ("Ooo Baby Baby"); infectious ear-candy like "This Diamond Ring" (Gary Lewis & the Playboys) and "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" (Gary DeCarlo from Steam); a pair of classic rock staples from Jefferson Starship ("Somebody To Love" and "White Rabbit"); and a trio of Herman's Hermits hits from Peter Noone ("I'm Into Something Good," "There's A Kind Of Hush" and "I'm Henry The Eighth, I Am"). The special also includes a memorable performance of Glen Campbell's "Turn Around, Look At Me" by Pennsylvania vocal group The Vogues – featuring the reunited tandem of original lead vocalist Bill Burkette and first tenor Hugh Geyer, the team that recorded their biggest '60s hits.

    "This special is all about happy, great times," said Davy Jones. "It's music from the '60s generation that my kids and grandkids listen to – they're into it. This is fun stuff, thanks to PBS."

    Will you tune in? It sounds uh-mazing!
