Options July 30, 2011: She's Got the Power: A Girl Group Extravaganza live from Lincoln Center with Ronnie Spector, La La Brooks (of the Crystals), Arlene Smith (of the Chantels) and many more. With Rex, Dave the Spazz, Gaylord Fields and Debbie D.
This five-hour-long stage spectacular, from 5pm to 10pm, is a roll call of girl group greats: Ronnie Spector, La La Brooks (of the Crystals), Arlene Smith (of the Chantels), Barbara Harris (of the Toys), Margaret Ross (of the Cookies), Maxine Brown, Brenda Reid and Lillian Walker Moss (of the Exciters), Peggy Santiglia Davison and Jiggs Sirico (of the Angels), Beverly Warren (of the Raindrops), Nanette Licori (of the Delrons), Baby Washington and Toni Wine. The festivities are hosted by WFMU boss jocks Rex, Dave the Spazz, Debbie D. and Gaylord Fields -- they'll be the ones in the matching gold blazers -- beginning at 1pm with a live broadcast of Rex's Fool's Paradise program. The radio proceedings continue with tunes and interviews, cranking up the anticipation till the ladies strut their stuff onstage at the 5 o'clock hour.

Hey, Portlanders' (OR.), there's a great free music fest going on right now at SE 10th and Washington Street. Gnar Tapes is putting it on. White Fang and Unnatural Helpers are on the bill. Runs until around midnight. I'm in the sun getting in solid listening to WFMU's fantastic sounding tribute to girl groups in between sets. Wearing my Woof Moo shirt with pride! C'mon down and support the Gnar Tapes kids.

Great to be there live! Hopefully it will be in the archive.

This show was fabulous and I hope it's added to the archive so I can listen to it periodically. If you're a Girl Groups fan or an Ellie Greenwich fan, I highly recommend it. Thanks guys, you're the best!
  Mon. 8/1/11 6:17am Joel Najman:

Absolutely terrific event, and superb WFMU broadcast! Should be archived for all to hear again - Please! Thanks, JN

Da Doo Ron Ronnnnnnnn ! Kudos to La La Brooks and crew xoxo
  Wed. 8/3/11 10:29pm Dave:

Leslie Gore and Ronnie Spector missing from last part of the concert! I wonder why? Any comments?
  Sun. 8/7/11 1:39am Joey:

Was at this show and it was phenomenal. As Dave above asked, why were Lesley Gore and Ronnie Spector left out of Ellie Greenwich tribute?
  Sun. 8/7/11 4:52pm Joey:

Actually, Lesley Gore and Ronnie Spector were left out. Period. Either it was their wish or there was some kind of contractual issue. Too bad since they were both superb. WFMU, would you explain?
  Mon. 8/8/11 12:56am Spazz:

Unfortunately we were unable to secure a release from Ronnie Spector for more than one song. We tried to get an OK to broadcast Lesley Gore's set with no success. We really wanted to but ultimately we honored their wishes.
  Thu. 8/11/11 8:57am Mary Shaw:

Thanks for doing this, I was not able to be there, it was so great of you!!
  Thu. 8/11/11 1:31pm Mary Shaw:
