Janelle thumbed through Variety. “NBC’s airing a new program called ‘Circus Boy.’” She ruffled her ten-year-old son’s blond hair. “Would you like to audition?”
“Nah.” Micky wrinkled his nose. “I got a baseball game.”
“You know what Dad says. ‘You have to follow the fish; the fish won’t follow you.’”
Micky, who enjoyed watching his father act on television, thought for a moment. “Okay. I’ll go.”
Two years later, Micky “Braddock” aka Corky learned about fleeting fame when “Circus Boy” ended.
Opportunity knocked again via NBC when 20-year-old Micky Dolenz snagged the role of the “Pre-Fab-Four’s” drummer in “The Monkees.”
In case you never caught the 1956-58 show (I didn’t), meet Micky Braddock
And one of my favorite Monkees songs with Micky singing lead.
