Springs Window Fashions
MTV was proudly founded in August of 1981 and introduced to the world the first airing of a musical video. MTV launched with the words “Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll” spoken by John Lack and played over footage of the first space shuttle launch countdown of Columbia, which took place earlier that year, and the launch of Apollo 11. MTV opened up a new world just like CANstruction has opened up a new way to supply Food Banks. We want everyone to think like the MTV creators – We can make it happen!! “Ladies and gentlemen, Rock CAN Roll!”
