Birth of MTV with Mark Goodman

By Westwood One

Original MTV VJ Mark Goodman is talking about the birth of MTV – from his first audition to his first moment on air!  You’ll find out why he and Alan Hunter argue about being the first MTV VJ to this day, what it was like touring with David Lee Roth, why Martha Quinn got the Bob Dylan interview (and not Mark Goodman), and what he really thought about Madonna the first time he ever interviewed her. Mark’s also disclosing where and how MTV got their early videos, and why British bands got such heavy airplay in the early years. He’s got a great story about Sir Paul McCartney, and the reason he knew Kurt Loder’s hiring was the beginning of the end of Mark’s time at MTV.
