the voyager institute presents:

MUSICVIDEODROME

The Voyager Institute provides the curious with performative lectures on the arts that educate, invigorate and exhilarate. Back in the day, “music video shows” truly ruled the airwaves rather than music videos themselves.  Come relive the awesomest era of broadcasting with incredible moments from the soul of music television -- and get an inside look at the medium which shaped multiple generations of American youth culture.
