Oh, MTV. You’re like that first love that we never really get over. Our romance with you, born on a Saturday morning on Aug. 1, 1981, seemed like destiny. And yet, less than 10 years later, you’d break our heart by severing ties with those amazing original veejays and guiding us into a “Real World” that we weren’t ready for (and didn’t want in the first place). Sadness.
This week’s special “Moment in Time” podcast celebrates the birth of MTV 35 years ago this week. And if we skipped the “death of MTV” part, well, it’s because it all still hurts a little too much.
