Did You Know?


MV3 was a syndicated music video show for people who didn't have cable. The show featured the latest videos and performances from new wave artists that were currently being played on KROQ FM radio in Los Angeles. It was filmed in local dance clubs and featured dancers, a la American Bandstand and Soul Train, but catered to a younger, hipper audience. It was also the first (and in some cases ONLY) place where you could catch bands like Romeo Void, Falco, and Heaven 17. See more »

I remember when MV3 came on, it was sooooo cool. It was the poor man's MTV for us kids who's parents couldn't afford to get Cable TV. Just like MTV, they had their own VJ's who introduced the videos and live bands. I remember seeing the Bangles play live three years before they hit big with "Manice Monday". MV3 played all those great new wave videos like "I Could Be Happy" ALTERED IMAGES, "Let's Go To Bed" CURE, "I Eat Cannabals" TOTO CUELO, "Mexican Radio" WALL OF VOODOO, "Love My Way" PSYCHIDELIC FURS, and more.

The only VJ I remember is Richard Blade because he was attractive and later had a part in the 80's film GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN playing a host of a dance show for which Sarah Jessica Parker tries out. He also had a series of compilation CD's showcasing his new wave favs from his 80's radio show.

I see MV3 was on for two years, but our local station only carried it for one season. Luckily by then I had found Night Flight on USA and Night Tracks on TBS to satisfy my video cravings.
