TRN Time Machine: 1985 MTV Video Music Awards

Jason welcomes special guest Tim to travel in this week’s TRN Time Machine back to 1985 and relive the 1985 MTV Video Music Awards show. As in our previous episode covering the 1996 VMAs, we’ll review the musical performances and decide which were our favorites. We’ll also cover the awards in order of presentation with Jason giving Tim the nominees and Tim guessing who actually won the Moonman trophy.

Also, join us for After Hours on Patreon every Tuesday night! This week, Jason and Tim continue their 1985 musical journey by covering the 1985 VMAs After Party and the video on the MTV Vault YouTube channel. They’ll also compare MTV’s Top 100 Music Videos of 1985 to the actual VMA winners.
