Spent about an hour on youtube watching the old music videos. Remember spending hours watching the same videos over and over...and the VJ's Martha Quinn, Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood, and the others. Of course, this was when MTV actually played music videos.

October 3, 1983 ... At Lancaster, England's John Waite, with "Missing You." Waite, formerly lead singer with The Babys ("Isn't It Time" and "Everytime I Think Of You") launched his solo career in 1982. His debut album, "Ignition," produced the single "Change," which became popular on album rock stations, due partly to its music video, in heavy rotation on the then-new MTV. "Missing You," co-written by Waite, appears on his second solo album, "No Brakes." It was rumored, and later confirmed, that Waite wrote the song for MTV veejay Nina Blackwood. "Missing You" topped the Billboard Hot 100, the Top Rock Tracks chart, and the Canadian RPM chart. (In 2007, Waite re-recorded "Missing You" with country star Alison Kraus. Their version reached Top 40 on the Country Tracks chart.)
Nina Blackwood's voice is not pleasant to listen to at all. She sounds so unhealthy I can bearly stand to listen to it. Obviously she has been a heavy smoker over the years. Even her breathing sounds laboured. If you are going to be on the radio you should have the voice for it.
XM DJ Nina Blackwood sounds like she needs to drink some water. Or puke up a lung.
Where were you in '81? Oh, for the good old days of Martha Quinn, Nina Blackwood, et al...

Wings Hauser as Ramrod in Vice Squad is cinematic brilliance ne plus ultra. He hits Nina Blackwood in the privates with a wire hanger.
Not that I needed confirmation, but I am old. Watching a morning news talk show and their hint for 'guess who's coming to breakfast?' was 'this former MTV VJ is a new mom.' I immediately think to myself 'it can only be Martha Quinn or Nina Blackwood.' How sad... :)

I am Nina Blackwood was my favorite MTV VJ years old.
What's the story on this Nina Blackwood chick? Does she have a respiratory condition or does she think that raspy breathing has sex appeal? I can't stand to listen to her talk. She sounds as though she smokes a dozen packs of cigarettes a day.

80's on 8 has the orginal Dj's from MTV. Alan Hunter, Martha Quinn, Nina Blackwood, and Mark Goodman. When I listen, it brings back memories of watching MTV when they first aired.
Hey kids 4 Father's Day- Coz your Daddy has always thought HOT!
Yeah I know, this is old news. MTV was ruined several years ago. I didn't get to watch enough of it when it was good because I didn't have cable back then. Palladia is probably the best music station now.

Loving my 80s on 8 xm station with Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, Nina Blackwood, and Martha Quinn, the original MTV VJs. Yes kids, MTV was cool to watch at one time in history. I saw the vjs on an interview. Martha looks the exact same and the others haven't aged that much.
Ha this is so great! Nu Shooz posted a 1986 Tour T-Shirt. Were you at any of these shows?? For your answer I CAN'T WAIT.
Starting my Buggles cover band this summer. I need a Martha Quinn.
If you are looking for good summer beach reading material read I Want My MTV. It's a cool behind the scenes look at the beginnings of MTV and all the partying and rock star indulgences that went on. If you were a teenager like me when MTV first came out and actually played videos it's really interesting.
Does Nina Blackwood on Sirius 80's on 8 & an original MTV vj also the same lady that does those "Stop smoking" TV commercials? Geesh.
Mark Goodman, Nina Blackwood and Martha Quinn are DJ's on Sirius radio station 80's on 8. Do you know where we first heard these names? If you liked music television in the 80's you should know.
DAY 2 Quotes of the day: “It’s hot!” (by, like, everyone) & “Take a picture of me looking dramatically into the ocean” (by Brooke) Today, we started our day by eating a balanced breakfast of cereal and sweat. Everyone, including the manliest of men, complained about the long walk (which was less than a quarter of a mile) and heat on the way to the Peoples Church of Bahamas. The group stood outside the church taking pictures and talking about anything but the UV-rays wrinkling and burning our skin. As we entered the church, many people offered a hand shake and a welcoming grin. The church service consisted of both modern and traditional styles, giving us a small dose of the Spanish Wells style. The preacher spoke of leadership and disciples explaining the real significance of it all. They performed everything from solos to group singing, and they went so far as to play their oh-so-loud organ. The church service ended and we walked back to our well preserved resort to change our clothes and eat. T ...

Attention all children of the 80s: if you ever secretly or openly loved A Flock of Seagulls, Martha Quinn (or any of the original 5 MTV VJs),or Whitesnake videos, then get a copy of the book "I Want My MTV." You'll be transported back to the decade in ways you never thought possible. I highly recommend the book, and all I can add is thank god for Youtube: without it I'd never get to see those glimpses into the history of music television.
Sigh!!! My inner 16 year old is going crazy because Simon LeBon is on the Beyonce' Concert for Women. Hey.where's John Taylor? He was always my favourite Durannie.
I'm listening to Nina Blackwood (of the old MTV days) play 80's music. Good show. Brings back memories of concerts, parties, RIT dorms, old boyfriends and friends. Hard to believe time has flown so fast.

A young Nina Hagen doing a punky—some might call it demonic—live cover version of “Ziggy Stadust” around the time of her Unbehagen album in 1980. I like the Bauhaus cover, too, but I like her version even better. It’s great to see how NIna Hagen has managed to retain such a devoted cult following…

I would however like to send this request: Please be kind to my natural curly hair. It has been so long since it has had the honor of your presence. While it is great to have the curl, the word FRIZZ, is the inconvenience we would like to avoid! Thank you so much! Sincerly, Who knows- maybe- Robert Plant, Nina Blackwood, Gilda Radner, Gnewt, Albert Einstein, or a Troll Pencil
