Vintage Atlanta tv commercials #2: Video Music Channel

If you lived in Atlanta between 1982 and 1986 and were of a certain age, you undoubtedly remember the Video Music Channel.  The weird videos and wacky VJ’s on the VMC warped my impressionable adolescent mind.  Unlike the placelessness of MTV, the VMC was firmly rooted in Atlanta and all its musical happenings.

I recently interviewed Tom Roche, who was the Production Manager for the VMC, and I’ll share some of his comments in a subsequent post.  For now I’ll pass along a VMC commercial which promoted four of their special shows.

    I remember this well! This was on before we had MTV on local cable. Remember the Dave Show?

    Dang! I love it. Yes I remember the Dave show with Dave Holmes. VMC was the best.

    I’ve been trying to find some old video of that channel, but there is so little out there. I even went through my old VHS tapes and found a little bit of “Metal Works”.

    I won two records from a “call in” contest. None of those on MTV… my family moved to Charlotte in ’84 and it was there I first found MTV, which I felt was a huge downgrade. No local flavor at all.
