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
