Off The Chart: 29 March 1982Not to worry you or anything, but we’re going back a full four decades on this week’s Off The Chart to look at the hits of this day in 1982! As usual we’ll be digging up the obscure, forgotten and neglected songs on that week’s chart, as well as dishing out tracks from three of the week’s new albums, stirring in a round-up of the day’s events, seasoning with a hit from the South African chart and garnishing it all with the UK’s top five in full.

  • Which band made their Top Of The Pops debut without their lead singer?
  • Who was the second German act to reach number one in the UK?
  • And who named their biggest album after a gay club in Basingstoke New York?

Tune in and find out!
