Flashback: 1980

I first spied this video playing on a wall-mounted television (monitor?) in the Gallery of Sound store in the Wyoming Valley Mall.

It was wierd. It was different. It was fresh. It wasn't ABC's In Concert. It wasn't Don Kirschner's Rock Concert. It was much unlike Midnight Special. It was this, this, wait for it--this video thingie. It was as if these guys were mugging for the cameras on purpose, by design...on cue.

And I thought to myself, boy, I could do this all day long.

And some months later (not many), on my daughter's second birthday, MTV was launched.

Later
