MTV debuted on August 1, 1981. Today is also the 231st anniversary of Francis Scott Key's birthday, but they didn't often play his music on MTV.
These days, they don't play much music on MTV. What a shame. In the beginning, MTV had a very limited music library, but they played what they had over and over and over again, and we watched it--over and over and over again. Now that they must have an enormous collection, they don't play any of it.
It seems that in the longer run, video did not kill the radio star...
Having a nice weekend?
