Title: Video killed the radio star
Author: Andy Partridge
Source: Smash Hits
Publish date: September 20, 1979

THE BUGGLES: Video Killed The Radio Star (Island). Bruce Woolley helped write this little gem and his band do a fair rendition of it. This is by a couple of geezers with a penchant for sickly production, and ties. Won’t be a hit because it’s too tidy, like vymura. Try again.
