This week, 30A Radio’s DAWN PATROL chats with Alan Hunter, MTV’s very first video disc jockey, who has been vacationing in the 30A area since he was a child. Hunter talks about the early days of MTV, the infamous MTV Spring Break, and interviewing musical greats like The Psychedelic Furs, Ozzy Osborne, Frank Zappa, Billy Joel, and Madonna before everyone in the world knew who Madonna was.

Plus, you’ll hear about some of Hunter’s favorite spots on 30A and his thoughts on music today — all on this week’s episode of DAWN PATROL!
