At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, Vh1 Classic will air a special program called “2,009 For 2009 Music Video Marathon.” The program will feature 2,009 of the the classic video music channel’s favorite videos. That’s a lot of videos and may challenge the hard disk space on your DVR or Tivo just a bit since the program runs for seven days.
From the schedule on the Vh1 Classic website, it appears the program will air from 6:00 AM to 4:00 AM in the days following the kickoff on New Year’s Eve.
The program will be hosted by Mark Goodman who many of us may remember as one of the early VJ’s on MTV back in the good old days when the music video format was in its infancy.
Among the artists on the playlist for the program are Van Halen, Madonna, Guns N’ Roses, Duran Duran, Cyndi Lauper and, of course, a lot more.
Presented in an orderly alphabetical fashion, the program will begin with Gloria Estefan’s “1-2-3” and wrap up a week later with David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust.”
