Playing tracks by
Pauline Murray and the Invisible Girls, Magazine, The Clash, B.A. Robertson, AC/DC and more.
The past, present and future combine in this week's Off The Chart - things get tense. Buh-boom. Steve and Julian go way back to the chart of 6 August 1980, playing some of the hits you don't hear so often and some that you do, plus the top five in full and three tracks from a genuine classic album of the week which, by the law of averages, you probably already own. Why was Prince such a big fan of Esther Rantzen, which '60s star made a solo comeback in Japan with a B.A. Robertson cover and... who was the "silent killer"? Click play to find out!
