REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST: THE FIRST 25 VIDEOS PLAYED ON MTV

August 1 1981 MTV launches | Craig Hill Training Services

August 1, 1981 at 12:01 AM- MTV made its cable television debut. I wasn’t sitting in front of the television watching on that day- the cable company in town was a little slow in getting it- as I recall we finally got MTV in the summer of 1983.

MTV back then believe it or not played music videos- not culturally bankrupt trash. They didn’t have deejays- they had veejays- and the original MTV veejays were Alan Hunter, Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood, J.J. Jackson and my favorite Martha Quinn.

  1. About Martha Quinn.. there’s a weird but charming 4 part video of Martha and Bob Dylan backstage at a concert in the 80s.. she’s applying his eye makeup and he’s madly flirting with her
