J.J. Jackson

God, I'm getting old...

John ‘J.J.’ Jackson, who in the 1980s helped usher in the music video era as one of the first MTV on-air personalities, has died. He was 62.

Jackson, a longtime radio station disc jockey, died of an apparent heart attack Wednesday while driving home from dinner in Los Angeles, friends and radio industry colleagues said Thursday.
I remember watching MTV when it was still great: all music videos, all the time. And JJ was one of my favorites - well, after Martha Quinn (petite, cute brunette) and Nina Blackwood (wild blonde hair and that raspy voice...).
