Off The Chart: 31 August 1982As August 2021 fades into oblivion, why not join us on Off The Chart and revisit the end of August 1982? We’ll supply a load of hits, some you might remember, some you may never have heard before, some you’d probably rather forget. Then we’ll sprinkle on tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of what was going on, a song from one of the day’s John Peel sessions, a hit from the Dutch chart and the top five in full to round things off.

  • Who had a hit single singing about a doyen of postmodern philosophy?
  • Which rock legends were struggling with their least successful single of the decade?
  • And which TV personality had two of his daughters competing for chart success?
