MTV once made me buy music

In 1992, I started college in Danville, Virginia. My roomate and I had a black & white TV and no cable. But, we met a girl, whose parents lived nearby who had cable and MTV. And more importantly, they had a VCR! We set up their VCR to record "120 minutes" every Sunday night at midnight and each Monday, she would rush home to retrieve the tape. Monday night was our night to watch the latest in 'alternative rock'!We sat in the dorm surrounded by show posters from the nearest music scene in Chapel Hill, NC and took notes on what bands to keep an eye out for when they came around.
