Off The Chart: 13 December 1980Strap yourselves in, we’re heading all the way back to 1980 on this week’s Off The Chart and it’s not going to be an easy journey. We will, of course, reward you with two hours of obscure, neglected and forgotten hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s goings-on and a trip to the ever-popular Japanese chart, plus the top five singles in full when we get back.

  • Who promoted their live album with a single of a performance that wasn’t on the album?
  • Which regular top 40 visitors changed labels and torpedoed their chart career?
  • And who got his own band banned from his home country?

Tune in and find out!
