In Part Two of our look at the birth of Music Television – or MTV – the Renegades Radio Podcast will roll out some of the biggest songs that typified the sound of MTV. From the emergence of women in pop and rock, the breakthrough of rap and hip hop on the scene and the birth of a new hard rock genre – “hair metal” – MTV was instrumental in music…for their first decade, at least.

In the wee hours of August 1, 1981, something called Music Television – or MTV – was born.

On the first of a two-part episode, the Renegades Radio Podcast will celebrate the birth of MTV 38 years ago, remember how good it once was and, yes, even discuss the present demise of the once powerful channel.
