MTV Launches in Russia - and the PSBs Cut the Ribbon!

Dave Rimmer, Guardian, The, June 1993

2002 NOTE: This piece about the launching of MTV Russia was published by the Guardian in London, by Tip magazine in Berlin, and by the Budapest Week in Hungary. It’s the only thing I've ever written about my friend Neil Tennant, who is interviewed within, along with MTV executives and Russian music industry entrepreneurs.
