https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6761Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll.” In MTV’s early days, its programming consisted of basic music videos that were introduced by VJs (video jockeys) and provided for free by record companies As the record industry recognised MTV’s value as a promotional vehicle, money was invested in making creative, cutting-edge videos. Some directors, including Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry, worked on music videos before segueing into feature films. In the 1980s, MTV was instrumental in promoting the careers of performers such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince and Duran Duran, whose videos played in heavy rotation. By the late 1980s, MTV started airing non-video programming. Its popular reality series The Real World launched in 1992 and was followed by shows like The Osbournes, Laguna Beach, My Super Sweet 16 and The Hills. MTV also debuted animated series including Beavis and Butthead, Daria, and Celebrity Deathmatch, as well as documentaries, news, game shows and public service campaigns on topics ranging from voting rights to safe sex.
MTV developed a reputation for pushing cultural boundaries and taste; the airing of Madonna’s 1989 “Like a Prayer” video is just one famous example.
In 1984, the channel launched the MTV Music Video Awards, which were followed in 1992 by the MTV Movie Awards. Today, MTV is getting back into music-video programming as it’s bringing back Total Request Live. #MTV #IwantmyMTV #AceHistoryNews

#ThisDayinHistory 1923: One of the most influential figures in the history of American popular music Ahmet Ertegun was born went on to influence the industry with creation of Atlantic Records #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.01: You might not know it to look at him, but this diplomat’s son and his business partner Herb Abramson would create a groundbreaking record label in 1947. That label, Atlantic Records, would play a pivotal role in breaking down the racial barriers that characterized the postwar music industry #AceHistoryDesk reports

In the late 1940s and early 1950s, Ertegun worked with artists like Big Joe Turner, Ruth Brown, The Drifters and Ray Charles to lay down the foundations of a musical style that future Atlantic producer Jerry Wexler had only recently christened “rhythm and blues.” The future styles called “soul” and “rock and roll” would also evolve out of the sounds that Ertegun helped to popularize, and the early Atlantic catalog would be instrumental in inspiring the blues-based rock that British bands like the Rolling Stones brought to America in the mid-1960s. When Herb Abramson departed Atlantic in 1958, Jerry Wexler and Ahmet’s brother Nesuhi joined on as partners, and after another incredibly successful decade as a true independent, they sold the label to the forerunner of Time Warner in 1967. Atlantic retained a distinct identity within its parent company, however, even as it moved from the music of Aretha Franklin and Led Zeppelin in the 1960s and 1970s to rap in the 1990s. Dedicated to the music until the end, Ertegun died in 2006 following a fall backstage at a Rolling Stones concert at New York City’s Beacon Theater. #AtlanticRecords #AhmetErtegun #AceHistoryNews

On #ThisDayinHistory 1914, World War I erupts in Europe as four days after Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, Germany and Russia declare war against each other #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Aug.01: France orders a general mobilization, and the first German army units cross into Luxembourg in preparation for the German invasion of France #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/6759 During the next three days, Russia, France, Belgium, and Great Britain all lined up against Austria-Hungary and Germany, and the German army invaded Belgium. The “Great War” that ensued was one of unprecedented destruction and loss of life, resulting in the deaths of some 20 million soldiers and civilians. For the most part, the people of Europe greeted the outbreak of war with jubilation. Most patriotically assumed that their country would be victorious within months. But, by the end of 1914, well over a million soldiers of various nationalities had been killed on the battlefields of Europe, and for neither the Allies nor the Central Powers was a final victory in sight.

On the western front–the battle line that stretched across northern France and Belgium–the combatants settled down in the trenches for a terrible war of attrition. In 1918, the infusion of American troops and resources into the western front finally tipped the scale in the Allies’ favor. Bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with an imminent invasion, Germany signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in November 1918.
World War I was known as the “war to end all wars” because of the great slaughter and destruction it caused.

Unfortunately, the peace treaty that officially ended the conflict–the Treaty of Versailles of 1919–forced punitive terms on Germany that destabilized Europe and laid the groundwork for World War II. #WWI #AceHistoryNews
