Off The Chart: 19 May 1982

Off The Chart: 19 May 1982

Come back to 1982 for another two hours of hits, headlines and hullabaloo on Off The Chart! As always Steve and Julian are here to deliver another lorryload of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three tracks from one of the week’s big hit albums, a look at the day’s events, a track from an international chart and the top five singles in full. And of course there’s the forfeit track for those of you who still won’t back us on Patreon. Which top ten hit was later adapted for two separate number one hits? Who went solo at the last minute without telling his record company? And which record became the 500th number one single in the UK? Click PLAY to find out!

 


If you enjoy Off The Chart and you’d like to avoid the weekly forfeit track, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? You get access to an exclusive alternative version of the show which includes bonus 12″ mixes and the foreign chart rundown in place of the forfeit track, as well as all sorts of other bonus content including regular Further Off The Chart shows. We really appreciate it and it all goes towards the running of the site.

If you’ve missed a previous edition they’re all on our Mixcloud page, or for a taster of the music we play, listen to our Spotify playlist Way Off The Chart including one track from each show!

 

We also have a Spotify playlist for our #ICEOTWF feature, including all (well, most) of the international hits we’ve played since the feature began in March 2017. There are all sorts of oddities in here, all of which were hits somewhere in the world but not in the UK!
