Here is a nice late-undergrad or early-grad-school lab report on the determination of spin states in nuclear decays. The references to that paper (from 1940 and 1950) are relatively accessible, too. As your pullquote says, you get $J^{PC}$ from measuring angular correlations. If a particle at rest decays into two daughters, the angular correlation is ...
