Over 10 years -  “Friday Night Videos” – network television’s longest running video program will leave the air by November 5. The show competed with MTV in the early 1980’s when both cable and music television were finding their way. The show was created by Dick Ebersol, who was also producing “Saturday Night Live.” He decided to team that show with a late-night music package and the rest is video pop history.

Lined-up for “MTV Unplugged” in November - Nirvana and Duran Duran.

All 36 students scored higher after listening to Mozart, some as many as 9 points.
