Members of the singing quartet the Crystals, from left, Dee Dee, Francis, Barbara and La La, arrive from the United States at London Airport, England, in 1964.
During the early to mid 1960's there was a proliferation of teenage female vocal singing groups in Top 40 popular music, and many of these groups had clever and memorable names.

This week Joel Najman's My Place program samples a baker's dozen of these groups, with selections by Angels, Chiffons, Dixie Cups and many others.
