Off The Chart: 28 October 1986

Off The Chart: 28 October 1986

Come back in time with us as Steve and Julian revisit the UK singles chart of this day in 1986 on another Off The Chart! They’ll unearth some forgotten hits, play three tracks from one of the week’s big albums, review the day’s events, dig out a hit from an international chart and play the top five in full. Which Scouse comedian found himself struggling with the true spiritual problems of living? Who put together a charity record that raised next to nothing? And which Hollywood megastar began his career with a distinctly non-PC rap that would probably get him into trouble if some two-bit radio show were to unearth it now? Click PLAY to find out!


If you enjoy Off The Chart and you’d like access to specially recorded bonus items, fascinating behind-the-scenes secrets, our exclusive Further Off The Chart shows or even to be part of Off The Chart and get to choose some of the music, head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month. 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!
