Experience the First Two Hours Of MTV from 1981

MTV started as the first 24-hour cable network for music. The network innovated and broke ground with what was aired at that time. Music Videos would start to become the norm. Fast forward 30 years later and now the network is nothing more than a 24-hour network devoted to the show Ridiculousness. At this point I am baffled paramount has not dropped the M in MTV. But what if I told you could experience the first two hours of the network launch?

One YouTuber uploaded the first two hours of the network launch. And it is something to watch. Starting with Video Killed the Radio Star, the network was destined to be something generations would talk about. So, relive those first two hours or experience them for the very first time.

I am Rebekah and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
