Forty years ago this month, America (and soon the world) witnessed one of the most phenomenal events in the history of popular music:  The launch of a nationwide, twenty-four hour, all music video channel.

Opening with the iconic and prophetic song “Video Killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles, generations of teens saw a greater connection to the rock stars they loved, an entire branch of the entertainment history was born and record labels realized a completely different way to market their artists beyond album covers, radio play and tours.

Take a fantastic voyage into the first year of Music Television when directors first explored what was possible in this new era.  Featuring amazing performances from:  The Pretenders, Asia, Pat Benatar, The Who, Phil Collins, Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks and many more.
