Off The Chart: 12 August 1982

We’re going back 35 years on Off The Chart as Steve and Julian dismantle the chart of 12 August 1982! There are some forgotten hits, a look at the day’s events, three tracks from a featured album, a song from the Australian chart and the UK top five singles in full. Which American soul group had a top ten hit written by a madman in a kilt wielding a claymore? Which song from this week’s chart has been recorded over 25,000 times? And which of this week’s hitmakers went on to compose songs for Monty Python? Tune in to the Youth Radio Network at 10am on Saturday to find out, or listen here on Mixcloud!
