For a few years in the 1960s, four girls from Queens, NY, were one of the most successful pop groups in the world. Wild Shangri-Las stories trace how Mary and Betty Weiss and Marge And Mary Ann Ganser became radio darlings. The band started out playing high school talent shows and sock-hops, but their unique sound and rough-around-the-edges charm quickly gained them notice. Music executive Artie Ripp signed them to their first record deal, and soon this all-girl group was recording chart-topping albums, embarking on sold-out tours, and basking in the glow of international stardom.
