Further Off The Chart Nine

Further Off The Chart Nine

Exclusively for our wonderful Patreon backers, here’s another grab bag of some of the records that came up in conversation on Off The Chart over the past dexy. On this episode: a dubious German mashup of the Pet Shop Boys and someone who blatantly isn’t Corey Hart; Tori Amos sings Chas & Dave; and for everyone who complained about the two versions of the Theme From “Shaft” on our 100th show, another version of the Theme From “Shaft”. Enjoy!

If you’re not backing us on Patreon, you won’t be able to hear this, which would be a pity. Of course, you can remedy that by backing us to the tune of just $1 a month, which would give you access to all sorts of extra bonus content including the previous eight editions of Further Off The Chart, extended versions of the regular Off The Chart with no forfeit tracks, the Virtual CD Of The Month and a general feeling of well-being. It’s a good offer; we urge you to accept. Click here.
