August 1, 1981, was a historic moment for music lovers across the United States. It was the launch date for the very first 24-hour all music video channel, MTV. This moment turned music from beats you could groove to into something you could not only hear, but could also see. Music videos changed the face of music, and the first video to be shown on MTV was the ironic "Video Killed the Radio Star," by The Buggles.
Much like other historically significant events, the release of MTV was so important to so many people that they can recall exactly where they were when they sat with their friends to watch the next 24 hours of videos. Can you recall where you were?
