The Zombies: A Real Song and a Fake Band

New Episode! In Spring of 1969, the song "Time of the Season" was being heard everywhere in the U.S. It nearly topped the Billboard Charts and had teenagers begging for a U.S. tour from The Zombies, the British band who recorded the song. The only problem was that the band had already broken up. So in 1969, a disingenuous promoter put together several FAKE versions of The Zombies and toured the U.S. with it. And you won't believe who some of those fake band members went on to become! In this week's episode, we tell the story of Rock n Roll Hall of Fame band, The Zombies, and then chat with Comedy Writer Jimmy Mak!
