Off The Chart: 17 March 1986

Off The Chart: 17 March 1986

We’re rewinding to this day in 1986 on this week’s Off The Chart! Join Steve and Julian for two hours of records you don’t hear on a normal chart show, plus three tracks from a featured album, a look at the day’s events, a hit from the Australian chart and the top five singles in full. And don’t forget the forfeit track! Back us on Patreon to avoid the worst record in the chart and gain a bunch of bonus 12″ mixes and an international chart rundown. Which perennial John Peel favourites made their first foray into the mainstream chart this week? Who became the first singer to reach number one twice with different recordings of the same song? And who are Ralph, Pooch, Chubby, Butch and Tiny? 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!
