The program was broadcast from the beach at Santa Monica, California. When weather did not permit, it was sometimes moved to Palm Springs, California. Hosted by KHJ "Boss Jock" Robert W. Morgan, and later, Michael Blodgett and teen model Kam Nelson, it followed the standard format used by other programs such as American Bandstand. In addition to dancing and musical guests, the show also featured bikini contests and pie fights.
The show also featured games, including one called "The Generation Gap", where a teenager and an adult (usually a parent but it could be another adult, such as the principal of the high school the teenager attended) would each be asked three questions--the teenager would be asked questions the adult would easily know but would likely challenge a teenager; the adult would be asked a question teenagers would know but would likely stump an adult. If they answered all questions correctly, they won a prize.
Possibly as a local example of a comely California coed who was recognizable in the Los Angeles market through her appearances on the Groovy Show, Kam Nelson would be featured in the opening credits of the thoughtful 1970s Lloyd Haynes television program Room 222
