This. Is. It. Welcome to MTV – Music Television. The world’s first 24 hour stereo video music channel. Just moments ago, all of the VJs and the crew here at MTV collectively hit our executive producer, Sue Steinberg, over the head with a bottle of champagne, and behold, a new concept is born. The best of TV combined with the best of radio. And starting right now, you’ll never look at music the same way again. We’ll be back to introduce the other VJs, and the other folks who are gonna be with us on MTV.

Mark Goodman speaking the first words on MTV (after the classic rocket launch, of course) 38 years ago today.

Hawkeye: She-she killed it! She killed it!

Dr. Sidney Freedman: She killed the chicken?
