This Day in History August 1, 1981


Well, today was a monumental day in music history.  And it concerned what you see in the picture above.  Yes, on this date in 1981, MTV was launched!  I remember MTV in its inception because I refused to watch it.  My next-door neighbor loved Madonna, and I remember having to watch her once.  And that was it.  Thankfully, we did not have cable, so I did not have to watch it.

Amazingly, early MTV offered music videos--can you believe it?  Not like today when it has other programming on.  And the first video?  I will attach the video here--it's really a hoot!
