Bruce Channel (born as Bruce McMeans, on November 28, 1940, in Jacksonville, Texas) was a one-hit wonder known for his 1962 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. Bruce wrote "Hey! Baby" in 1959, together with Margaret Cobb, and had been performing it 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 distributed by Smash.
