Off The Chart: 20 June 1983As we reach the summer solstice (in this hemisphere anyway) feel free to disrobe, let your hair down and dance around this week’s Off The Chart! We’ll have the regular mystical incantations* concerning the week’s forgotten, obscure and neglected hits, three of the week’s new albums, the day’s news and events, a track from the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK’s top five in full.
*But not Incantation, because they weren’t in the chart this week.

  • Which minor top 40 hit was sampled for a number one hit 18 years later?
  • Who released their first four albums in the space of a year?
  • And which of this week’s new albums was selected by the US Library of Congress for preservation in the National Recording Registry?

Tune in and find out!
