Off The Chart: 15 March 1985It’s the end of another dexy and the wind of change is blowing – hopefully it doesn’t blow Steve’s shed away again. Be that as it may, we’re going back to this day in 1985 on Off The Chart for your regular two hours of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, three of the week’s new albums, a look at what was going on in the world, a sniff around the Austrian chart, and the top five singles in full.

  • Who took the unusual step of recruiting African musicians for an African famine relief record?
  • Who got into the album chart with a coupling of two previous 12″ singles?
  • And who had the unfortunate achievement of scoring two consecutive number 41 hits?

Tune in and find out!
