Mollie King to host Radio 1 podcast looking at 90s & 00s girlbands

Mollie King will host BBC Radio 1’s brand new podcast Where It’s At: A Short History of Girlbands.

The podcast will chart the evolution of the nineties and noughties’ girl bands with contributions from the likes of TLC, Girls Aloud, Little Mix and the Sugababes.

In each episode, Mollie will look at how girl bands – including her own, The Saturdays – established themselves as a part of music history and how groups like FLO, BLACKPINK and Say Now are redefining girl power for a new generation.

Mollie says: “When the BBC asked me to choose some of my favourite 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.

“I’ve had such a great time chatting to some of the women behind a few of my favourite 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.”

A teaser episode of Where It’s At: A Short History of Girlbands will be available on BBC Sounds on 25 October, with the first four episodes launching on 6 November and the remaining four available from the 13 November.
