Storyline

First appearing before music videos had become commonplace, this show featured the week's top hits in pop music. Guest performers would occasionally appear on the show to play their songs. Typically, however, the only visual accompaniment to the music was the Solid Gold Dancers, a dozen or so dancers in skimpy costumes who would perform interpretive renditions of such hits as "Down Under" and "Maniac".

Solid Gold
9 July 2004 | by (oregon) – See all my reviews

I have a lot of SOLID GOLD videos and I watch one about every week, and I have to say, those dancers, especially the ladies, were the sexiest rump-shakers the 80's ever offered. I loved the artists on the show as well, but no one could deny that they didn't appreciate those sexy dancers! Week after week I would tune in just to see those talented dancers in shiny 80's Lycra and leg warmers do their thing. I have been a fan since it first aired back in early 1980 and stopped watching around 1988. It just wasn't the same.My favorite hosts were Dionne Warwick, Glen Campbell,Andy Gibb,and Rex Harrison (love that feathered hairdo!!!)
