Off The Chart: 14 January 1984We’re halfway through January already, but the remnants of Christmas 1983 are still hanging around as we revisit this week in 1984 on another Off The Chart! Join us for two hours of forgotten and half-remembered hits, plus tracks from three of the week’s big albums, a look back at the day’s events, a quick nose at the Irish singles chart and the UK’s top five singles in full.

  • Which band had fourteen hit singles but only reached the top forty once?
  • Who had his last top twenty hit with an unexpected cover version?
  • And whose latest hit sounds like a parody of their big hit from the previous year?

Tune in and find out!
