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.
