You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...
We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.
Backtrack: Dawn of Music Videos
"Ladies and gentlemen... rock and roll." Those are the opening words spoken on August 1, 1981 that launched MTV and the music video revolution. But it actually started before that in smaller forms with artists like David Bowie and Queen pushing video as a medium for exposing their music. In this Backtrack we talk about our experiences with music videos as a GenX'ers and even managed to do a little research and learn a thing or two!
