#115 – Nina Blackwood – Original MTV VJ

Nina Blackwood was one of the original five VJs that played all that crazy music in the early days of MTV.  Unbelievably the network quietly just celebrated it’s 30th anniversary.  Icon Fetch sits down with the former Ohio resident about how she got chosen to join the fledgling network and what those early days were like, when it seemed like new music was spilling over everywhere.  We also touch on some of her current projects, including the nationally-syndicated Nina Blackwood’s Absolutely 80’s, and her daily slot on Sirius/XM’s 80’s on 8 channel.
