Off The Chart: 24 September 1982

Take a couple of hours off from retuning your colour TV set for the new Channel Four and come back to this day in 1982 for another Off The Chart! Join us for two hours of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three of the week’s new albums, a review of the day’s occurrences, a quick peek at the Austrian chart and the top five singles in full. Which huge new wave star kicked off his solo career with a song from 1929? Who got bored of working with musical geniuses and went running to Phil Collins? And which important music industry figure got his big break dressed in a superhero dog costume? 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.
