Anyone who has even a passing interest in the history of Pop Music has the BBC to thank for the many and incredible documentaries which have been produced by that network over the years. Today's Pop Chronicle feature comes via the BBC and an excellent series currently running on BBC 6 Music on the history of Sixties Girl Groups. This installment, which aired last week, features the girl groups produced and guided by the legendary Phil Spector (yes, that Phil Spector - the one currently serving time, but that's another story). It dives into the history of many of the great groups of the period and exposes a few myths for what they are, while also giving some background on what was really a factory atmosphere that turned out one hit after the next.

Good listening and great information on a period of music occasionally dismissed and often portrayed under false pretenses.
