1 Sept 1983 was a Thursday - I would have been at work and not listening to the radio. But so long ago, who knows?

The tune I remember was quite unmistakable. A slow dance rhythm:

Dum, da-dum
Da duddum, da dum
Da der-dum, de dum da dum.
Duddum da dee dum;
Duddum da DEE dum;
Duddum de da de dum.

If that means anything! Sorry I can't do proper musical notation.

That link leads to this:
