The Radio Star Shines - and how!
I am quite certain that The Buggles would be proud to see the radio star not only surviving the biggest homicide attempt towards it by Video, but actually doing pretty well for itself. When I first heard Video Killed the Radio Star I was still in school and did not quite get it. Much later it dawned upon me that even I who quite liked the song was as much part of this homicide attempt. The irony was it took MTV to air the video of this song for it to really take wings....
I sometimes wonder what actually happened to the radio star though.
I have since then moved on from The Buggles to The Beatles and The Nirvanas and The Perl Jams and The Doors and The Hendrixes et all. And with technology on my side thanks to Internet Radio or Online Radio as you wish to call it I decided to setup my own radio station as a dedication to all my favorite stars who did not need TV to let themselves be heard. And yes that includes the now forgotten radio star too.
