Tonight at the Blaisdell Arena, the Summer Soul Fest is taking place. Last week we spoke with the headliners, The Stylistics. This week we continue with a conversation with two more acts: The Shirelles' Beverly Lee and The Crystals' DeeDee Kenniebrew. These two girl group pioneers told HPR's Dave Lawrence stories that stretched back to a very different era.

This Saturday night The Crystal Method returns.
