Off The Chart: 9 June 1987

Off The Chart: 9 June 1987

Come back to this day in 1987 as Steve and Julian bring you another two hours of hits, headlines and horsefeathers on Off The Chart! As always there’s a hatful of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three tracks from one of the week’s biggest albums, an international hit, a look at the day’s events and the top five in full. Not only that, but as you’re still not backing us on Patreon you get a remarkable forfeit track when you could be listening to the German top 20 rundown and some bonus 12″ mixes for as little as $1 a month. Which band scored their biggest hit after dropping their former drummer Madonna? Who was at number 10 and number 95 at the same time with the same song? And how can we crowbar five songs by the same act into the show? Click PLAY to find out!

 


If you enjoy Off The Chart and you’d like to avoid the weekly forfeit track, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? You get access to an exclusive alternative version of the show which includes bonus 12″ mixes and the foreign chart rundown in place of the forfeit track, as well as all sorts of other bonus content including regular Further Off The Chart shows. We really appreciate it and it all goes towards the running of the site.

If you’ve missed a previous edition they’re all on our Mixcloud page, or for a taster of the music we play, listen to our Spotify playlist Way Off The Chart including one track from each show!

 

We also have a Spotify playlist for our #ICEOTWF feature, including all (well, most) of the international hits we’ve played since the feature began in March 2017. There are all sorts of oddities in here, all of which were hits somewhere in the world but not in the UK!
