    60s Girl Grooves (My Music) For the first time ever, the "My Music" series spotlights the girl groups and female singers of the 1960s in a special which features the rarest footage and original performances from back in the early and mid-1960s. Clips come from worldwide archives including American Bandstand, Where The Action Is, Shindig!, and many other vaults thought long lost. "This time in American pop music is very special," says series creator TJ Lubinsky. "it's a time of innocence, angst, puppy love, heartbreak, and most of all great memories of younger carefree times - like the feeling we all share of that one special 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 "Supreme" Mary Wilson. duration 1:59:10   STEREO TVG
