Buggles - Video killed the radio star 1979

33 Years ago today this video launched MTV. We didn't have it in our little town, it was a few more years before our cable carried it. But one of my friend's had grandparents with a satellite, so we would go spend time at their house, and watch it there. It was the kick-off to the '80's; it's music, it's clothes, it's attitude! (We really did just want to have fun!) I was married with a  two month old baby when 1990 rolled around, but the first 3/4ths of the decade was one wild ride!

Twins were born in 1985 and the channel was not allowed here for a long time. When Eldest decided to become a punk rock star in high school I allowed it. Of course what some female stars do now makes that all seem really tame.

It just became such a huge part of my late teens and early twenties, back when it was about the music! We would have parties and I remember MTV always being on in the background.

It sure seems like it's been longer than 33 years!
