This Was The Very 1st Video Ever Played on MTV – B-Side Trax …

It was August of 1981. Cable TV was just starting to boom & the carriers were starved for new content.  Enter a new concept, a network that only played music videos – the dickens you say !

Just so happens, this British band had recently finished a song that meshed perfectly.  You remember it, AND, it was the very 1st video ever aired on, well, you know …
