Video Killed the Radio Star "Video Killed the Radio Star" is a song by the British synthpop/New Wave group The Buggles, released the September, 7 1979 on Island Records. It celebrates the golden days of radio, describing a singer whose career is cut short by television. It was the first music video shown on MTV in North America at 12:01am on August 1, 1981 and has been widely parodied in popular media. The lyrics refer to a period of technological change in the 1960s, the desire to remember the past and the disappointment that children of the current generation would not appreciate the past. In the 1950s and early 1960s, radio was an important medium for many, through which "stars" were created. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=XWtHEmVjVw8

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
