The Funky Cuts
My thesis on girl groups is that they started with big bands on stage when microphones and vocal PAs appeared with the onset of crooners fronting big bands and the introduction of radio as an entertainments medium. Their appearances in musical films and on 78s sparked an interest which is maintained till this day. They came to to the fore in the fifties and sixties when teenagers had the money to buy records.
I still play a lot of girl group records when I'm DJ'ing and playing on The Funky Cuts. Today I'm dedicating the show to Girl Groups and female singers accompanied by girl groups with a particular listen to covers rather than originals and female versions of hits by male singers and answer records to hit songs.13:00 - 14:00
