Northwoods Computer Guy is your Antigo answer for all things to do with your computer. He has fixed a paper jam for me. He has helped me pick out new products. He tuned up my old beast of a machine. He did all this quickly, in a super professional and friendly manner, and within my budget. You can’t go wrong! Call Scott today if you have any computer needs. -Samantha Masterton

1981 – Video killed the radio star

August 1, 1981

  • I really do remember this day in history quite well, I remember waiting patiently for the channel to go live… MTV, presumably standing for “Music Television”, launches on cable TV.

As most people know, after the introduction sequence, the first video played was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. However, a bit of trivia is that the second song played was “You Better Run” by Pat Benatar.

MTV had an immediate impact on the music industry and was an iconic symbol of the technology-driven 1980’s.  What was your favorite video?!?
