Off The Chart: 2 May 1980Time to pledge allegiance to the ’80s once again as we go all the way back to 1980 on this week’s Off The Chart! We’ll have the usual parade of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits from the week’s singles chart, plus three of the week’s new albums, a round up of the day’s goings-on and a hit from the Japanese chart, all crowned with the week’s top five singles in full.

  • Whose run of top 40 hits was ended by a song about drugs?
  • Whose first number one brought six of their old hits back into the chart?
  • And whose two top 40 hits were both covers of the same song?

Tune in and find out!

Listen to Off The Chart on Noisebox Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, with a bonus hour of additional hits from the same chart at 11pm in Off The Chart Too!
