Earsay was a mildly diverting Saturday evening pop magazine show in the latterday Whistle Test mould . It ran on Channel 4. It had a nicely balanced presenting team of Nicky Horne, a bearded junior Bob Harris , who liked guitar pop and the annoying London DJ, Gary Crowley, who adhered to the Weller manifesto that rock was dead and jazz and soul were the way forward.
It is best remembered for Horne conducting a 45 minute interview with Morrissey that then went unbroadcast though you can find it on Youtube.
