The Pop Culture Experiment Radio Show appears on BostonFreeRadio.com every Saturday morning at 10 a.m. Eastern. The show is based on the Cover Songs Uncovered blog.

Episode: 1
Aired: Sept. 17, 2016

The inaugural episode of the radio show focused on “Video Killed The Radio Star.” The Buggles’ version became the first video ever played on MTV, and thus became viewed as an ’80s staple. But the song is not exactly the “original” version of the song, even if it’s not a cover, either. I delved into the version by the forgotten Buggle, Bruce Woolley, as well as versions by Ben Folds Five, The Presidents Of The United States Of America, Erasure, Pomplamoose, and more.
