Off The Chart: 9 July 1988

Off The Chart: 9 July 1988

The cycle never stops – no sooner have we come to the end of one dexy than we’re starting another one! It’s 1988 on this week’s Off The Chart, with the usual mixture of forgotten and half-remembered hits, three of the week’s new albums, an international hit, the Arthur Dent Moment, a look at the day’s events and the top five singles in full. Which legendary band finally enjoyed a second top 40 hit eight years after their first? Which former teen idol returned in a band that sounded like a firm of solicitors? And who became the youngest person ever to write, perform and produce a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100? 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 now 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 5pm on Thursdays.



If you enjoy Off The Chart but find it’s just not long enough, why not head over to our Patreon page and subscribe to us for a teeny amount of cash every month? You get access to the exclusive deluxe edition of the show with bonus 12″ mixes, additional chatter and the week’s top ten singles in full, as well as all sorts of other bonus content including regular Further Off The Chart shows where we play some of the records that come up in conversation on the regular shows. You can have all this for as little as $1 a 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!

 

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!
