60s Girl Grooves (My Music)

(Rochester, NY)—For the first time ever, MY MUSIC spotlights the girl groups and solo singers from the early and mid-1960s in an all-archival celebration that features original performances. Curating worldwide video archives with rare footage from the vaults, 60s Girl Grooves (My Music) airs Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

“This period in American pop music was very special,” says series creator TJ Lubinsky. “It was a time of innocence, angst, puppy love, heartbreak and, most of all, great memories of carefree youth — like the feeling of that one memorable summer we all had in our teens — wherever we were hearing these songs on the radio.” It’s early rock and pop at its best on PBS, hosted by the always vivacious and “Supreme” Mary Wilson.
