This week we visit September 1981, when Adam Ant was the hottest property about, The Stones could still pull off a top 10 hit and the decade of novelty hits like The Tweets and the hit mixes like Enigma, Stars on 45 and The Hollies with their revival hit mix.

Hits a-plenty from Soft Cell, ELO, Ultravox, Hi-Gloss, Linx, Genesis, Human League and more, album new entries from Shaky and Ultravox and a number one classic album there. All the Top 20 hits and some from the bottom half, plus a triple play from the albums makes it a very good year.
