This show was a breath of fresh air. People have to realise that before this all we had in the way of popular music programming was the pop-tastic approach of patronising Radio 1 DJs and the desperately earnest Whispering Bob on the Old Grey Whistle Test. Revolver was edgy, unapologetic, irreverent, challenging and most of all it was original. And not only that but I recall seeing some of the best live performances I have ever seen on TV - how could anyone forget Ian Dury's extended and angst-ridden version of What a Waste and I also recall even Rod putting in a good performance. It gets top marks from me for the happy memories I have of it and those times.
