Off The Chart: 11 April 1983Off The Chart ploughs on into its eighth year with a trip back four full decades to this day in 1983! Join us for two hours of obscure, neglected and forgotten hits from the UK chart, as well as three of the week’s new albums, a look at the news, TV, radio and gigs of the day, a hit from the Canadian chart that never had a sniff of success over here, and the top five in full to round things off.

  • Whose first hit was the original of a song that was currently a bigger hit for someone else?
  • Who had a UK hit in 1983 with a track from Spain’s best selling album of 1980?
  • And who tried to resurrect their career with a cover of a song released just too late to stop the original becoming a hit?

Tune in and find out!
