Off The Chart: 24 December 1980

Off The Chart: 24 December 1980

All the way back to 1980 this week on Off The Chart for one of the least festive charts imaginable. As Britain faces up to rising unemployment, Christmas without John Lennon and a lorryload of inedible poultry, join Steve and Julian for some of half remembered hits, three tracks from an album they found under the tree, and the top five in full. Gawd help us, every one.

If you enjoy Off The Chart and you’d like access to fascinating behind-the-scenes secrets, our exclusive Further Off The Chart shows or even to be part of Off The Chart and get to choose some of the music, head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month. And even if you don’t give us any money (yet) you can still listen to the outtakes.
