Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Hot Child in the City (1978-9)

Nick Gilder had struck the top of the Canadian charts as a member of Sweeney Todd before going solo. However, the only song most people remember is this one, "Hot Child in the City", which hit #1 on the Hot 100 in October 1978, and landed Gilder appearances on the usual places, including The Midnight Special, from whence we get this clip. The YouTube poster said this clip was from 1979, after "Hot Child" had peaked.

I remember that Gilder also was on American Bandstand, and that would've been in the summer-fall of 1978.
