The legendary girl group The Supremes perform a medley of their greatest hits, including "I Hear A Symphony."

“This period in American pop music was very special,” series creator TJ Lubinsky said. “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.

60s Girl Grooves brings back pivotal R&B and pop vocal groups of the late fifties and sixties through never-before-broadcast archival and new live performances of their most loved hits.
