Rewind was a stopgap emergency programme that filled the gap in the Friday evening schedule when The Chart Show was taken off air due to a dispute with The Musician's Union. It simply consisted of live performances from the channel's still-young music archive ( i.e first broadcast on The Tube, Switch , Whatever You Want etc ) . Of course I'd seen most of them before and the interruption to The Chart Show was a considerable irritation to me. The dispute was resolved at the end of August.
