Off The Chart: 3 September 1980

Off The Chart: 3 September 1980

We’re going all the way back to 1980 this week as Steve and Julian fight off the studio gremlins to bring you another edition of Off The Chart! The links might sound a bit odd but the music is top notch, with the usual mix of forgotten and half-remembered hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a review of the day’s events, a hit from the Canadian chart and the top five singles in full. Whose second number one hit continued a story begun in his first? Who got a cover of a Gary Numan song into the shops the week before Numan’s own version? And who had to change the title of their latest single under threat of legal action from The Sun? 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.
