Off The Chart: Leap Year Chart Research AddendumUm, yeah, look, there’s been a bit of a cock-up. Not our fault, really, but adding in an extra day last week because of the leap year has thrown everything out of whack, with the result that the day we should be covering today, 5 March 1986, is a day we already did five years ago. And the same thing happens next week, and the week after that, and every week for the next two years. So… this week’s Off The Chart is a Leap Year Chart Research Addendum (L.Y.C.R.A.) looking at the charts for 29 February 1980, 1984 and 1988. Five new entries from each chart, plus one new album and the number 1 single, and the usual selection of news, TV & radio listings, gigs and what have you. We’ll be back to 1986 next week and hopefully things will be less repetitive from then on. Sorry.

Listen to Off The Chart on Noisebox Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, with a bonus hour of additional hits from the same chart at 11pm in Off The Chart Too! And don’t forget you can join in the show chat on the Noisebox Radio Discord server.
