Off The Chart: 14 April 1989

Off The Chart: 14 April 1989

We’re rewinding to 1989 on this week’s Off The Chart! Join Steve and Julian for two hours of forgotten hits, tracks from the week’s featured album, a look at the day’s events, a track from the Dutch chart and the top five in full. And if you’re not backing us on Patreon there’s a terrible forfeit track for you to sit through while our backers get to luxuriate in the international chart rundown and bonus 12″ mixes. Which slow burner made it to number 1 this week, ten weeks after it first entered the chart? Who got her big break after the Jacksons saw her cheerleading? And what was the biggest band ever to come out of Bathgate? 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!
