Bob Explains His 1981: No More Wire Hangers, Bob!

In the last 9@9 Bob explained the death of Music Television, and so for this 9@9 Bob wanted to explain the birth of Music Television. He knows he did it backwards, but, he's Bob, so it'll be fine. 1981 was the year MTV played the first music video, The Buggles "Video Killed the Radio Star." The irony was not lost when radio outlived music video television, but, nobody's keeping score.
