Off The Chart: 10 June 1986

It’s 1986 this week on Off The Chart as Steve and Julian play some of the week’s less well remembered hits, which include a record from the ’70s, a musician from the ’50s and a band who claimed to be from the future. There’s also a hit from an international chart, three tracks from the week’s featured album, a look at the day’s news, sport, TV and gigs and the top five singles in full. How were Tears For Fears “persuaded” to help out Bob Geldof? How did phonebook confusion lead to New Order doing the 1990 England World Cup single? And who had a hit with a film soundtrack song that isn’t even in the film? Click PLAY to find out!
