There is a debate which surfaces from time to time in the world of Todd fans: Did Rundgren's TIME HEALS or Pat Benatar's YOU BETTER RUN play after the Buggles VIDEO KILLED THE RADIO STAR on MTV's first broadcast? I'll send a free T-shirt to anyone who can prove it definitively. W!B

Hi Wibbly,

I'm sorry I can't prove it, but I do remember watching a recent show on MTV on the early days/how they got started. The first Video they played was by the Buggles, Video Killed the Radio Star and the next song was Pat Benatar, You Better Run.

I hope this helps you out a bit.

No, there was a band called Nu Shooz (they sucked, too), but The Shoes were just a four-piece Romantics-type of band that got lots of airplay in the early days of MTV. They had about one-tenth the talent of the Romantics, so you can see what I mean. The Shoes sang "Too Late" and a couple other songs of which I can't remember the names. Thankfully, they never made it big...and rightfully so.
