Can you believe MTV just turned 30 years old this week? Yes, that’s right! August 1st just marked three decades of incredibly innovative, inspiring and sometimes controversial music videos and entertainment and the celebration continues.
One of the iconic network’s original VJs (the music video equivalent of a disc jockey) Mark Goodman recently sat down with TV/radio hostess Gayle King to reminisce on the early days and talk about how it all got started. Listen and watch as the two take a trip down memory lane an discuss the longevity many thought MTV wouldn’t maintain.
