Off The Chart: 4 June 1983

Off The Chart: 4 June 1983

Come back to this day in 1983 as we unearth some buried treasure on another Off The Chart! As always we’ve got a shedload of hits you might have forgotten or never knew in the first place, plus tracks from three of the week’s new hit albums, a look at the New Zealand chart, a recap of the day’s events and the top five singles in full. Which rock superstar could only manage one top forty hit from his second album? Whose biggest hit single was a track they’d recorded three years earlier? And who described the recording of their latest hit album as “f***ing torture”? Tune in and find out!

Listen to Off The Chart on Mad Wasp Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, or catch the repeats at 3pm 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 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 5pm on Thursdays.



If you enjoy Off The Chart but find it’s just not long enough, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? You get access to the exclusive deluxe edition of the show with bonus 12″ mixes, additional chatter and the week’s top ten singles in full, 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’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!
