Into The Music was a relatively short-lived programme presented by Tommy Vance and produced by Tony Wilson: it featured melodic rock, or as the Radio Times put it, "(TV) puts music back in your ears." It took the Thursday night 10 to midnight slot on BBC Radio One from John Peel, who likened the listening experience to watching paint dry [1]. In turn, after a year the show was axed to make way for new recruit Andy Kershaw.

The show broke no new ground and firmly set out its stall in the AOR market, with a parade of somewhat forgettable sessions that exhibited no crossover with the FRS (with the sole exception of Saracen). The dates and session artists featured (repeats in brackets) are recorded below mainly for posterity, although to date only one show recording has been shared (to this writer's knowledge).
