Renegades Radio Podcast – Celebrating the Birth of MTV, Part One

MTV

In the wee hours of August 1, 1981, something called Music Television – or MTV – was born. Consisting of nothing but music videos 24/7, it was a revolution in the music industry and would have an impact on many areas of culture in the States of America and internationally. 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.
