.....and then there were four.
rest in peace J.J.

A good part of my adolescence was spent watching music videos (yes the REALLY DID play them back then) with J.J. and
Martha Quinn, Alan Hunter, Mark Goodman, and Nina Blackwood.

MTV's been on the air over 20 years now.. that would make him 40 when he started. I could definitely believe that.
