Ran into Honolulu Lulu last night and man, she was a mess.

Solid Gold tv show

As a teenager in the early 1980s, Solid Gold was my Shindig! unfortunately. On Saturday nights from 7 'til 8, I grooved with, sang with, made fun of some, and laughed at the hooker outfits on the Solid Gold Dancers. The hosts over the years were Dionne Warwick, Andy Gibb, Marilyn McCoo, Rex Smith and Rick Dees. The show aired from 1980-88.
How did I come out of this cheesiness unscathed?
Or did I? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh! Help!

The Crystals perform their fabulous 1963 "Wall of Sound" tune on Shivaree in 1965. How cool were the go-go girls from Shivaree?
