9 pm Saturday, March 8, on WILL-TV: It was a time of innocence, angst, puppy love and heartbreak. Girl groups sang about all of it. Watch a preview.
PBS spotlights the girl groups and solo singers from the early and mid-1960s in an all-archival celebration that features original performances. 60s Girl Grooves (My Music) curates worldwide video archives with rare footage from the vaults.
“This period in American pop music was very special,” says series creator T.J. Lubinsky. “It was a time of innocence, angst, puppy love, heartbreak and, most of all, great memories of carefree youth — like the feeling of that one memorable summer we all had in our teens — wherever we were hearing these songs on the radio.” It’s early rock and pop at its best on PBS, hosted by the always vivacious and “Supreme” Mary Wilson.

7 pm Monday, March 10, on WILL-TV: Learn how to manage money and make smarter choices towards an economically secure future.
Suze Orman knows that everyone has financial issues and problems and in this new television special sharply focuses on helping individuals find financial solutions that fit their situation. As always, her advice is based not just on numbers, but grounded in a critical understanding of people and their emotional needs. SUZE ORMAN’S FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS FOR YOU is a sparkling hour of television that will tangibly help viewers manage their money today and make smart choices toward a more economically secure tomorrow.
The central theme of SUZE ORMAN’S FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS FOR YOU is that financial decision-making should be guided by an understanding of “the goal of money,” which Suze perceptively defines as “to make you feel secure.” Financial solutions should work to fulfill that goal, and Suze stresses the importance of feeling comfortable with those decisions. Financial problems arise when we do things with money that do not seem “right” to us — despite pressures and advice from others.
In the program, taped at American University’s Greenberg Theatre in Washington, DC, Suze gives up-to-date advice on a broad set of financial issues, and responds with savvy, humor and empathy to specific questions from the enthusiastic audience. She insightfully covers a wide range of topics that will resonate with television viewers, including how to invest, whether to buy or rent a home, saving for retirement, what kind of life insurance to buy, wills and trusts, student loans and more.
Suze Orman has been called “a force in the world of personal finance” and a “one-woman financial advice powerhouse” by USA Today. A two-time Emmy Award-winning television host, New York Times mega bestselling author, magazine and online columnist, writer/producer, and one of the top motivational speakers in the world today, Orman is undeniably America’s most recognized expert on personal finance.
