Brace yourselves, Barnsley, we’re heading back to this day in 1981 for another edition of Off The Chart! As usual we’ve got two hours of obscure and forgotten hits, plus the day’s eye-watering news headlines, three of the week’s new albums, a quick look at the Canadian chart and the UK’s top five in full.
- Who covered one of Stevie Wonder’s biggest hits before it was a hit?
- Who took the Sam Fox route backwards and became a pin-up model after her pop career?
- And who was behind the musical revue “Restless Underwear”?
Tune in and find out!
Listen to Off The Chart on Mad Wasp Radio at 9pm every Tuesday! You can stream Mad Wasp Radio via their website, their apps for iOS or Android, or through TuneIn and MyTuner, or ask your smart speaker to “play Mad Wasp Radio” – and don’t forget to tweet along using the hashtag #OffTheChart.

For those of you who enjoy the nonsense we talk but don’t have time to listen to the music, we’ve put the talky bits together with some exclusive extras to make a podcast! This week the #32 comedy podcast in Kenya uncovers a plan to swamp Barnsley with sex emporia. It’ll all make sense if you listen.
