Off The Chart: 22 November 1983If four World Cup matches in a day is a bit much for you, join us on Off The Chart as we transport you back to 1983! We promise not to mention football, but we will mention lots of obscure, neglected and forgotten hits, three of the week’s new albums, a look at the non-football related events of the day, a hit from the New Zealand chart and the top five singles in full.

  • Which of this week’s hitmakers was the father of a more famous actor?
  • Which classic protest song took twelve years to become a hit in the UK?
  • And which rock classic was written on the toilet?

Tune in and find out!
