Okay I feel better now!

BTW, how did you and me get "senior member" status? I knew I shouldn't have gone into the chat room with you! Smile

"Senior Member" the dirty puns have no end.  I think you get Sr. status with 250 posts.  I'm not sure what kind status you get hanging out in chat rooms.  Maybe a new kind of rep point.

The song is The Buggles singing Video Killed the Radio Star.

Bound to be a Youtube offering available outside the UK.

Though it would be poetic justice if there wasn't.

That Buggles song has the distinction here of being the first music video ever shown on MTV.

I didn't know that.

I last had a TV around the time MTV became a thing around here.

RE: What are you listening to?
MTV was fun back then, early 80's. Now, of course, it is a bloated, teen-oriented reality nonsense channel. Not sure if they even show music videos anymore. Of course, I now see it through the eyes of a old man.

Oh, and Don- they have TV's you can hang on the wall now!
