For the first time ever, MY MUSIC spotlights the girl groups and female singers of the 1960s in an all-new, all archival pledge special which features the rarest footage and original performances from back in the early and mid-1960s. Curating the collection from worldwide archives including American Bandstand, Where The Action Is, Shindig!, and many long lost worldwide vaults, this special is built around a first-time ever all new PBS exclusive CD box set of original girl group hit recordings, gathered together for the first time on one package. The special also features a 3-DVD set with girl group and solo female classics, never before made available on DVD. "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. Pledge Event hosted by TJ Lubinsky and Denise Richardson.
