MTV's Original VJ's Offer Sneak Peak at Memoir With Hurricane Sandy Auction
Two advance copies of "VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV's First Wave" will be sold to raise money for victims in the New York Area
The original surviving MTV VJs--Nina Blackwood, Mark Goodman, Alan Hunter, Martha Quinn--are auctioning off an advance signed copy of their joint history VJ: The Unplugged Adventures of MTV's First Wave to benefit Hurricane Sandy victims.
The book is the first joint collaboration by music channel's original hosts.
Publisher Atria touts, they "stood in as surrogates for viewers, offering a fan’s-eye glimpse into the world of rock and pop during its 80’s heyday. … Simultaneously part of the scene and outside observers, the VJs interviewed, hung out, partied with, and occasionally dated some of the most famous names of the day."
The book is scheduled to be published May 7, 2013.
To benefit Hurricane Sandy victims the four are auctioning off two signed page proofs through Ebay Giving Works, offering a pair of fans an early read.
The first auction begins Dec. 3 and lasts a week. The second begins Dec. 10 and also lasts a week.
Proceeds benefit New York Care, the city's largest volunteer organization, and Best Friends Animal Society.
Information on the auctions can be found here.
