Video fails to kill the radio star

When MTV launched in 1981, the first music video it played was “Video killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. The intent was clear; the channel was going to kill off old-fashioned radio.Down the years plenty of technologies have looked set to kill off radio: talking pictures, TV, the cassette tape, the CD, the iPod. Today it’s streaming music services like Spotify. All have so far failed.
