Curating worldwide video archives with rare footage from the vaults, 60s GIRL GROOVES (MY MUSIC) is part of special programming premiering on PBS stations beginning August 3, 2013(check local listings).

"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."
