For Those Who Missed It, DJ Bette Midler, For The Girls BBC2 Audio Clip

In a special show, actress and singer Bette Midler celebrates the music of her favourite girl groups.

“A long, long, time ago I fell in love with voices in harmony. It almost didn’t matter what the songs were…it was the sound of human voices blending together. I never recovered from that initial assault on my senses and, in particular, I loved female voices singing together. Growing up when I did, I was lucky enough to hear and fall in love with so many great girl groups – these girls had A SOUND!”

The programme features tracks from 1930’s stars The Boswell Singers and war-time favourites The Andrews Sisters, all the way through to The Spice Girls and Wilson Phillips. And there’s a selection of hits from The Chiffons, The Shirelles, The Shangri-Las, The Dixie Cups, and many more.
Plus, there are new examples of how the music of these girl groups has influenced Bette Midler’s own recordings.

Presented by Bette Midler.
Written and produced by Malcolm Prince.

  1. That was magnificent! I loved it all….even the BBC ads! She sounded great, like she was having Fun! I grew up with those 60s girl groups on my radio…so this really took me back, in a ‘smiling’ kinda way! Thanks for posting the link!!
