Off The Chart: 12 October 1984More light entertainment for all the family this week on Off The Chart as we go back to this day in 1984! We’ll have the usual complement of obscure and forgotten hits, plus an intriguing mix of new entries from the album chart, a look at the day’s (rather grim) goings on, a jaunt to New Zealand to look at their top ten, and back home for the top five singles in full.

  • Who finally got to write a song for his ’50s favourites, ten years after they broke up?
  • Who had sixteen hit albums but only two weeks on the singles chart, thirteen years apart?
  • And whose only hit single was very much like making love to a beautiful woman?

Tune in and find out!
