MT-USA was an Irish music television programme broadcast between 1984 and 1987. Known for the slogan, “Music Television USA – Music never looked better”, it was produced by Green Apple Productions, co-founded by the show’s presenter Vincent Hanley. MT-USA was broadcast on RTÉ on Sunday afternoons and during the 1984-85 series was repeated on Friday nights. Each edition ran for three hours. Each block of videos was followed by a segment filmed in New York City with Hanley introducing the videos, discussing American music and culture, and interviewing a celebrity. RTÉ described him as Europe’s first VJ. The videos were primarily American acts, many previously little-known in Ireland., but the show also featured English pop chart acts, as well as up and coming Irish acts such as U2. A double-CD and DVD compilation featuring acts from the show’s heyday went on release on 16 November 2007.
