It’s episode 369 of Off The Chart, but there will be no geese drinking wine, and monkeys chewing tobacco on the streetcar line is right out. However, we will be bringing you a load of obscure, neglected and forgotten hits from today in 1980, as well as a look at what was going on in the news, on the telly and in the concert venues, plus tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a hit from the New Zealand chart and the top five in full to round things off.
- Whose biggest hit had already been released as the B-side to a total flop?
- Who got their single into the chart by requiring fans to present a copy to get into their live shows?
- And who had four singles in the chart at the same time following the death of their lead singer?
