The 80s Cruise is ecstatic to welcome Mark Goodman on deck as one of our celebrity hosts. Though he launched his successful career in radio, Goodman is best recognized as an original VJ (video jockey) for MTV, where he spent much of the 80s interviewing some of the biggest names in the music industry – Paul McCartney, Sting and Bruce Springsteen included. In that same capacity, he became the face for several of the network’s hit shows including “The Week In Rock,” “120 Minutes” and the first show ever syndicated to broadcast by MTV, “The Top 20 Video Countdown.” After leaving MTV, the music personality had stints in film, television and internet radio. Today Goodman broadcasts from Sirius Satellite Radio’s 80s channel as well as its Classic Rewind and The Spectrum stations. Additionally, recent forays into the music supervision business have had him orchestrating soundtracks for film and television, including Touchstone/ABC’s hit series, “Desperate Housewives.” In 2013, Goodman and his fellow original MTV VJs co-authored “VJ-The Unplugged Adventures of MTV’s First Wave,” a behind-the-scenes look at the network’s early years. Expect Goodman to continue regaling audiences with these stories and other fascinating anecdotes as we journey back the 80s together.
