Mollie King most notably known for her contributions to the late 2000’s girl group, The Saturdays, will take listeners into the rich history of girl groups of the past. This new podcast takes part of BBC Radio 1’s extensive catalog & is available to listen on BBC Sounds.
Titled ‘Where It’s At: A Short History of Girlbands,’ King will document the iconic girl groups of the nineties & forward to see how their paths have been cemented in history for modern girl groups including those familiar to us such as FLO, Say Now & BLACKPINK.
Mollie King shares her thoughts on the creative process:
“When the BBC asked me to choose some of my favorite girl bands from the last few decades for a new podcast series, I knew this would be the most fun project EVER and it really didn’t disappoint.”
With each new episode, King will have special collaborations from girl groups we know & love nationwide including TLC, Girls Aloud, Little Mix & the Sugababes which will give listeners exclusive insight to their lives & opinions of being a part of that unique lifestyle.
“I’ve had such a great time chatting to some of the women behind a few of my favorite girl bands. From the fashion – the crazy outfits, the high heels and the even bigger hair – the dance routines and the fun of big budget music videos, through to the lesser-known lows of what it’s really like to live in the non-stop girl band bubble – it’s been brilliant to remember those times, whilst also looking forward to the future of girl band pop talent.”
The series is written and produced by east Londoner Kate Hutchinson, who is notably known for the award-winning podcast ‘The Last Bohemians,’ as well as her active work in the music industry. Moreover, the series is produced under Spiritland Creative & commissioned by Executive Will Wilkins for BBC Radio 1.
The first four episodes of ‘Where It’s At: A Short History of Girlbands’’ are now available to stream starting this week on BBC Sounds, with its final four episodes being available the following week on Monday, November 13th.
