A new installment of PBS' My Music series showcasing many classic female singers and girl groups of the 1960s is set to premiere on select public television stations on Saturday; check local listings.  My Music: '60s Girl Grooves will feature memorable archival TV performances from such stars as The Supremes , The Shirelles , Dusty Springfield , Petula Clark , The Shangri-Las , Martha & the Vandellas and Lesley Gore .

Founding Supremes singer Mary Wilson will serve as the program's host.

"This period in American pop music was very special," says My Music 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 those wonderful summers in our teens -- wherever we were hearing these songs on the radio."
