A Blast From the Past: When Ronnie Dawson Took "Monkey Beat City" to Conan O'Brien

Patrick's at the mayor's How to Save Park and Rec press conference, and while we wait for word about that big-time initiative we were promised this morning, here's a little lunchtime respite: The late, great Ronnie Dawson on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in '95. Somewhere amongst my stash of videos I have this particular performance, but I hadn't seen it in years -- then, moments ago, one "CarolFine1965" posted this glorious flashback featuring the Blonde Bomber and High Noon to YouTube, and, well, now I can't stop watching it.
