Bruce Channel is an American singer, known for his 1962 million selling number one hit, "Hey! Baby."Channel originally performed on the Louisiana Hayride radio show, and then joined up with harmonica player Delbert McClinton singing country music. Channel wrote "Hey! Baby" with Margaret Cobb in 1959 and performed the song for two years before recording it for Fort Worth record producer Bill Smith. It was originally released on Bill Smith's label, but as it started to sell well it was picked up for distribution by Smash. The song reached #1 in the US in March 1962 and remained in that position for 3 weeks. Besides topping the U.S. pop charts, it became #2 in the United Kingdom in 1962 as well. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. While Channel is often regarded as a one-hit wonder, he did chart four more singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including "Number One Man" which peaked at #52
