We’re going back a terrifyingly long way to this day in 1981 for this week’s Off The Chart! Join us for another two hours of hits you don’t remember very well, plus tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a day trip to the Spanish chart, a nose at the day’s news, TV & Radio highlights and the top five singles in all their glory. And maybe even a bonus track if we’ve got time.
- Which band had five singles in this week’s chart, recorded with four different line-ups?
- What was voted the best single ever to peak at number 2?
- And which single took 37 years to go platinum in the UK?

Now there’s a podcast too!
For those of you who enjoy the nonsense we talk but don’t have time to listen to the music, we’re now putting the talky bits together into a podcast! In this week’s deluxe, gold-embossed episode Steve and Julian discuss the International Who’s Who of Intellectuals and how climate change could have been halted decades ago if everyone hadn’t been watching the British Rock and Pop Awards. It’ll all make sense if you listen.
