  1. I was watching on this day back then…

    I was a teenage intern/DJ at a small taped format radio station, and we had got the heads up that this MTV thing might blow up big with teens around the country. The station manager asked us to watch it for ideas on how to improve our station.

    The rest is history.

    I had no idea who The Buggles were at the time…

    But every time I hear “Video Killed The Radio Star,” I smile…

    (that and Wall of Vodoo’s “Mexican Radio)


    Shame that MTV doesn’t even play music anymore.

  2. I had two Chinese roommates at the time. One [Xiang-Li] was the third child of a “landlord” family, so I assume they had some kind of real pull back in China.
    Anyway, a few days after MTV launched I got back to the apartment to see the biggest tv I’d ever seen and two speakers about twice the size of dorm fridges and enough videotaping equipment for a small news operation. Xiang-Li then proceed tape MTV 24 hours a day/7 days a week and ship the tapes back to China.
    I kept waiting for the cops to bust in and arrest us all. Never happened.

  3. This isn’t my favorite video, but I cannot think of this group or this song without thinking about MTV.
