Off The List: the Off The Chart Christmas Countdown 2018

Off The List: the Off The Chart Christmas Countdown 2018

Remember back in October when we asked you to vote for your favourite ’80s Christmas hits? Remember how you all complained and said it was far too early to start thinking about Christmas? It’s time to reveal the results…

Join Steve and Julian on Mad Wasp Radio for the Off The Chart Xmas party at 10pm on Christmas Eve. Enjoy the top twenty countdown, argue drunkenly about what is and isn’t a Christmas song, and mingle with some top pop stars who are definitely here and whose Christmas messages are brand new and certainly not cribbed from the 1982 Smash Hits Christmas flexidisc.

Listen to Off The Chart on Mad Wasp Radio via their website, their apps for iOS or Android, or through TuneIn – and don’t forget to tweet along using the hashtag #OffTheChart. If you’re far too busy on Christmas Eve, or you couldn’t quite believe it the first time round, you can hear the show again at 9am on Christmas Day and 1am on Boxing Day, or catch up on Mixcloud at your leisure.




If you’d like to show your appreciation for all the effort we put into bringing you Off The Chart every week, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? As well as an extended version of Off The List featuring the complete top 30 countdown (and lots of stuff we had to cut out of the standard show to keep it down to a two hour slot) You get access to the exclusive deluxe edition of the show every week, as well as all sorts of other bonus content including regular Further Off The Chart shows where we play some of the records that come up in conversation on the regular shows. You can have all this for as little as $1 a month – we really appreciate it and it all goes towards the running of the site.

If you need some festive entertainment before the show goes out, we’ve compiled a Spotify playlist of all the tracks that were eligible for the poll – well, at least all the ones that are on Spotify, but that’s still 2 hours 25 minutes of ’80s Christmas goodness!

Don’t forget – Mad Wasp Radio, Christmas Eve, 10pm for the big reveal. Bring a bottle.
