Let's Step Into the WayBack Machine....

Back to the days of HBO's "Video Jukebox"...Does anyone remember that? It was a half hour video show that was on  HBO back in the early '80's.

Yesterday, my brain remembered a song, and wanted to hear it, so I sought it out, and it is a song that I distinctly remember first hearing(and seeing, of course) on HBO's Video Jukebox. What song was it? It was "Pilot of the Airwaves" by Charlie Dore, of course. Wanna hear(see) it?
