How Music Changed

    Some historians would lead you to believe that the girl group sound popped up almost out of nowhere in the year 1960.

    While it is true that virtually all early rock and rollers were male, there were still plenty of female singers, sister groups, and ‘mixed’ groups to set the scene. Add in the few innovators who predate the 1960 timeline, and you have a viable history. This is our second show dedicated to the history of the girl group sound, and we start this show around 1957, eventually finding our way to the early sixties, when the girl group sound reigned supreme.
