MTV 25th Birthday

MTV debuted on 12:01 a.m., Aug. 1, 1981, with "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles. The first VJs were Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, J.J. Jackson and Martha Quinn. Jackson passed away in 2004. The rest now host the Big '80s channel on -- wait for it -- Sirius Satellite Radio. Oh, the irony.

You are just jealous because you can't listen to them om the Big 80s channel on Sirius Satellite Radio.

Of course, lately I only really listen to the Outlaw Country station. Particularly the show hosted by Mojo Nixon.
