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".

Trivia

Andy Gibb was in one of his worst periods of drug abuse during his tenure on this show. He often showed up late to tapings, or sometimes not at all. A former writer once joked that two shows had to be prepared each week- one if Andy did show up, and one if he didn't. See more »

Can the genius of Brad Lachman be denied? Here's a guy who started his show biz career as a tour guide at Universal Studio, worked his way up the ladder through sheer tenacity, and at a fairly young age comes up with the concept for Solid Gold. Some might snicker and claim that a rags to riches story can't apply to a "poor" kid from Encino, but this guy was not brought up with a silver spoon...at least not in his mouth. Those who knew him at Birmingham High School figured he might be destined for something out of the ordinary, but if you're talking entertainment, something along the lines of wrestling announcer would have been a more logical guess. Go figure.
