I been collecting my favorite music videos from 1981-1984, the golden years, just happened to be the early Reagan years too and the early MTV years.
One of those Christian right media watchdog groups, like Donald Wildman's, was complaining about that early MTV back then. Ironic since you would have to go to CBN today to see anything as wholesome and American on cable TV as VJ Martha Quinn on MTV was back in those days.
No-one could have imagined the MTV of today in those days, or Nickelodeon ; now brainwashing teen and young adults minds with (liberal) socialist and morally decedent values. It is downright sickening. I have digital cable so my cable box is programmed to skip over MTV. (Still watch Classic one music sometimes. )
You may have them blocked but your monthly bill is still going to Viacommie through SeeBS, LOGO (the gay network), Spike, Nick, Nick Jr., Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, BET, TV-Land, et al.
