God bless the Dutch. The following Web site features three hours of vintage, 1983-era MTV via Google Video. (Thanks, Paul.) Check out the videos at this link here. ZZ Top! Mark Goodman's 'fro! Madness! Bowie! I love it! My little retro heart just exploded with joy.
That site's almost as good as the 120 Minutes video aggregator, which compiles alternative videos which aired on the channel's excellent underground-music show. (Aside: I have a ton of vintage VCR tapes; can anyone help me digitize them?)
