For the first time ever, MY MUSIC spotlights the girl groups and solo singers from the early and mid-1960s in an all-archivalcelebration that features original performances. Curating worldwide video archives with rare footage from the vaults, 60s Girl Grooves is part of special programming.

“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.
