Hey are arcaders! This is not our normal arcade news or reviews. But it’s something that every child of the 80s Holds dear to their hearts. An arcade without music Is like Jumpman without Donkey Kong, Like Pac-Man without Ghosts, Or Dirk without Daphne. And all of us children of the early 80s Were really excited about something called MTV. No not the MTV that’s become reality television, But the one that used to play music. Great music. Okay, Some of it not so great. But as kids we were glued to the TV 24 hours a day (At a time when most stations ended their broadcast day at about 11!) To watch all the music videos, And to see the VJs! They were with us all the time, To tell us what songs were new, What albums were coming out, And where was the latest tour with our favorite band. And they interviewed them… Live and off the cuff! It was an amazing time, Because it was brand-new. It was something that had never been done before. It was like an FM radio station you could watch, And see everything that happened. And since August 1, 1981, MTV has changed our lives forever. And Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, Nina Blackwood, Martha Quinn, And J.J. Jackson were friends that lived down the street. But what about the VJs? How are their lives before during and after MTV? Finally all those Questions will be answered When the book VJ the unplugged adventures of MTV’s first wave Is released tomorrow. This is a book I had been looking forward to for a long time. I’ve been a long time sirus subscriber Because all the VJs that are still alive (We miss you, J.J….) Are on the 80s channel! Just listening to it brings me back 30 years. So for all of you people that grew up with MTV, This book should be an exciting read. I’m Going to be buying this book and doing a review on it and the next few weeks. So stay tuned for that arcaders, and keep playing like it’s… August 1st, 1981!
