Men Without Hats Alert!


Jim Perchinske relives the days of early MTV at tonight's All-Request Video Night. The Islander's house DJ recently installed a computerized sound system that's loaded with 5,000 videos from the '70s and '80s. The clips are broadcast on six televisions, including a six-by-eight-foot widescreen TV. The most requested videos are the Commodores' "Brick House" and anything by Billy Joel. "A lot of people in the bar don't want to look at sports," says Perchinske. "They love older videos, because it takes them back."
