When MTV began broadcasting in August of 1981, a channel playing only music was widely dismissed as a crazy idea. MTV was more of a ragtag, anything-goes operation in those early years, and the journey to becoming a global juggernaut was fraught with high-stakes battles against things as innocuous as local cable companies and as critical as systemic racism. Sometimes those things even came from the channel itself, as David Bowie once subtly pointed out on air. I Want My MTV is bursting at the seams with sexy (and sometimes laughably unsexy) '80s and '90s nostalgia, and MTV's evolution into its modern incarnation is vividly told in interviews with the staff and musicians whose lives were changed forever.
