"That generation has grown up to become viewers of VH1 Classic, which is the perfect place to relive many of MTV's iconic moments that helped shaped music and pop culture around the world."

Jackson, Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Martha Quinn and Alan Hunter.

The marathon will also showcase many of the original promos and contests from MTV's early days including Miss Cleo, Nintendo Power Glove, John Mellencamp's Pink House Giveaway, and the original "I Want My MTV" ad campaign.

***SO FAR I'VE BEEN WATCHING THIS... AND IT'S BEEN ####ING AWESOME! MUST WATCH IF YOU'RE A RETRO TV JUNKIE! I’m glad someone remembers that MTV used to stand for music and that it’s getting old. Too bad that MTV doesn’t remember that their main purpose was to play music or acknowledge or celebrate their history. But for those that do, this is your weekend and enjoy! SPREAD THE WORD!***
