Off The Chart: 30 September 1980

Off The Chart: 30 September 1980

Come with us all the way back to this week in 1980 on Off The Chart! Steve and Julian uncover some of the week’s forgotten hits, look at the day’s events, pick a track from an international chart, play three tracks from the week’s featured album and run through the top five in full. Which group’s film debut won the first Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Picture? Who had a top 30 hit with a song written in 1902? And who only reached number 55 with the third highest grossing song ever written? Tune in to the Youth Radio Network at 10am on Saturday to find out, or catch up anytime on Mixcloud!
