Video (TV) killed the Radio Star because as TV got more popular, there were fewer and fewer radio shows until there were none. The guys who wrote this song would have been old enough to have been little boys when radios shows died out and TV took over. Elstree which is one of the songs on the same album "living in the plastic age" has a wonderful line that ties into this song. In fact, he performed the song "Video Killed The Radio Star" live a few times during the 1980 Yes Drama tour. As for the song itself, as many have said above, it is about how the new form of videos were changing the music scene. T the time of the song's release, 1979, videos were looked upon as just a fad.

Album: The Age of Plastic (1979). Charted: 1 40. Get the Sheet Music License This Song.

I'd have to agree with Craig (Manitowoc, WI) on that point on MTV not playing music videos or music anymore and VH1 Classic is playing 80's hits and metal. Talk about irony a channel rightly named 'Music Television' not playing any music whatsoever while the first music video to start it off, as fore mentioned is a video for 'Video Killed The Radio Star'

Geoff Downes said in a 2011 interview that he felt the concept of. the video reflected on that of the song. Mulcahy asked Virginia Hey, a friend who was a model and aspiring actress, to dress "in a silver costume and be lowered via wires in a test tube. There were about 30 takes required for shots of the actress in the tube.
