Subject: Bruce Woolley - Video Killed the Radio Star

Written By: whistledog on 03/20/06 at 12:15 pm

Video Killed the Radio Star was a massive world-wide hit in 1979 for The Buggles, but does anyone remember (or have heard of) the original version by Bruce Woolley and the Camera Club?

Featuring a then unknown Thomas Dolby on keyboards, Woolley's version was first released and according to the info I found on the internet, it was a top 40 hit in Canada (which I already knew), but it doesn't tell me where else it was a success?

Here is a sound clip of the song ...

Interesting! Had never heard of the Woolley fellow before. The clip is pretty cool. Kinda different from the Buggles version, but still a fine one.
