Off The Chart: 22 January 1989

Off The Chart: 22 January 1989

Join us for another two hours of hits, headlines and hot air as we go back thirty years to this day in 1989 on another Off The Chart! Join Steve and Julian for your regular delivery of forgotten and half-remembered hits, a look at the day’s events, three tracks from one of the week’s big albums, a squint at the French singles chart and the UK’s top five singles in full. Which indie legends have had a hit six times with the same song? Whose first three hits all reached number 17? And which band saved valuable time by reducing their name down to a single word? Hit PLAY to find out!

Listen to Off The Chart on Mad Wasp Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, or catch the repeats at 3pm 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 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!
