Our meeting fell on the 52nd anniversary of the first girl group #1 hit on the Billboard charts, “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” by The Shirelles. The day before, the last living Andrew Sister, Patty, had passed away at age 94. So the question to the group was, “Who is your favorite Girl Group and why?” Answers ranged from Sleater-Kinney to Destiny’s Child to The Go-Gos.
