While searching YouTube for some retro goodness, I came across these videos which have the first hour of the live broadcast of MTV when it debuted on August 1st, 1981. This was back in the day when MTV was all about the music! I was about 16 when this aired for the first time. I remember being so thrilled when my friend was telling me all about the channel before it aired and I though it was the coolest thing...EVER! I'm so grateful that I was around to witness the former greatness that was the first music channel on TV. Enjoy!
