Off The Chart: 4 October 1980You’d better buckle up, we’re going all the way back to 1980 on this week’s Off The Chart! Join us for two hours of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, as well as all the usual features including three of the week’s big new albums, a look at the day’s goings-on, a hit from the Mexican chart and the full UK top five to conclude.

  • Whose last top ten hit was uncomfortably close to an ongoing news story?
  • Who wrote a tribute song to an artist who died six months afterwards?
  • And which hit album was recorded in a former slaughterhouse?

Tune in and find out!
