After Elvis shipped off to serve his country and before the Beatles wanted to hold your hand, Rock 'n' Roll went through a so-called barren period and desperately needed a shot in the arm to stay relevant.
Teen idols like Fabian and Frankie Avalon just weren't cutting it, and baby boomers couldn't relate to older crooners and novelty acts.
They needed a sound of their own - and they found it in groups of teenage girls.
Providing the soundtrack to a generation of young lovers, good-bad rebels, the candy store crowd and soulful swingers were artists with names like the Shirelles, the Ronettes, the Crystals, the Shangri-las, the Supremes, the Chiffons, the Pixies Three, the Toys, the Cookies, the Rag Dolls - and hundreds more whose time in the spotlight was as brief as a kiss on the cheek.
These are their stories and their sounds... the Girl Group Chronicles.
