Off The Chart: 15 January 1983

Off The Chart: 15 January 1983

Are you getting the hang of the Tuesday evening slot for Off The Chart yet? Tune in tonight for a trip back to this day in 1983, with a brace of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three tracks from one of the week’s big albums, a look at the day’s events, a rundown of the Swedish top twenty and the UK’s top five singles in full. Who broke their 100% record of top twenty hits with a song about the IRA? Who came close to having the Christmas number 1 and the Christmas number 100 in consecutive years? And whose final hit was written by a former England goalkeeper? Tune in at 9pm to 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 a comprehensive look at the week’s top ten singles, 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!
