It’s another weird time travel experience on Off The Chart this week, as we go back exactly forty years and find that it’s Easter Monday. Join us for two hours of forgotten and obscure hits from that week’s chart, as well as three of the week’s new albums, a look at the day’s goings-on, a quick jaunt to New Zealand to sneak a look at their chart, and back home for the top five singles in full.
- Who was enjoying their first of over fifty hit singles this week?
- Who had a top five hit with a parody of a TV ad?
- And which hit was described in 2002 as “the strangest chart record of the last 25 years, maybe ever”?
