Off The Chart Summer Roadshow: 20 August 1989

Off The Chart Summer Roadshow: 20 August 1989

Join Steve and Julian as they broadcast this week’s edition of Off The Chart live1 from North Berwick beach2! They’ll be looking at the UK singles chart from this day in 19893 with all the usual features including a brace of forgotten and half-remembered hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, an international hit, a look at the day’s events and the top five singles in full. Which pop superstar was languishing outside the top fifty with a song that would reach number one a year later? Which rock legend was enjoying his biggest hit single and album in sixteen years? And which top ten hit single was also a new entry on this week’s album chart? Tune in and find out!

Listen to Off The Chart on Mad Wasp Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, or catch the repeats at 2pm on Thursday or 10am on Saturday. You can stream Mad Wasp Radio via their website, their apps for iOS or Android, or through TuneIn and MyTuner – and don’t forget to tweet along using the hashtag #OffTheChart. If you’re somehow not around for any of the radio broadcasts, catch up on Mixcloud from 4pm on Thursdays.

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!
