Daily Trivia – 8/2/11

Question: What frontman joined Duran Duran’s John and Andy Taylor to form Power Station?


Last Question: Can you name the 5 Original MTV VJs? And who was your favorite (there’s no wrong answer for the second part).

Answer: Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, J.J. Jackson and Martha Quinn

And the VJ’s were also really cool. The original 5 were Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, J.J. Jackson and the iconic Martha Quinn. Unfortunately, J.J. Jackson died on March 17, 2004 at the age of 62 from a heart attack. However, if you have XM or Sirius Radio, you can listen to the rest of the VJ’s on the channel 80’s on 8. They each DJ in about 4 or 5 hour blocks, and they all host the weekly show Big 40 Countdown where they count down the 40 biggest hits of this week during a certain year in the ’80s. Last week’s episode was the biggest hits of the week in 1988.

    I LOVED Power Station. First time I heard them was on SNL, and their “Some Like It Hot” just blew me away.
