Happy Birthday, MTV

Here’s a link to a pretty good story on NPR’s Morning Edition. It includes a little “where are they now?” bit about the original “VJs.” (Spoiler: JJ Jackson died of a heart attack in 2004).

And just to tell you how old I am: I remember distinctly a time in which people thought “this is stupid,” and I also remember a time when all MTV showed was videos (and they only had about 150 videos) and we’d watch it for like six hours at a time. Times have changed, eh?

    I still think it’s stupid. I remember when I didn’t think it was stupid.

    Sad news about JJ Jackson though. I hope his family is able to get on with their lives after such a tragic loss. He was a genius.

    Don’t feel that old…..I remember when MTV used to only play videos too.
