Off The Chart: 27 August 1984

Off The Chart: 27 August 1984

After last week’s shenanigans, Steve and Julian are back in the relative safety of the studio for this week’s Off The Chart! Join them for a trip back to this day in 1984 with two hours of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three of the week’s new hit albums, a hit from the West German chart, a review of the day’s events and the top five singles in full. Which hit was named after a late ’70s Liverpool supergroup? Which track on today’s show was written about one of the other acts on today’s show? And which song was number 1 and number 2 in Switzerland at the same time? Tune in and find out!

Listen to Off The Chart on Mad Wasp Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, or catch the repeats at 2pm on Thursday or 10am on Saturday. You can stream Mad Wasp Radio via their website, their apps for iOS or Android, or through TuneIn and MyTuner – and don’t forget to tweet along using the hashtag #OffTheChart. If you’re somehow not around for any of the radio broadcasts, catch up on Mixcloud from 4pm on Thursdays.
