Off The Chart: 2 April 1989

Off The Chart: 2 April 1989

Due to a weird combination of events, especially the fact that we moved from Saturdays to Tuesdays at the start of the year, today is Off The Chart‘s third birthday! Join Steve and Julian for a celebratory trip back to this day in 1989 for another two hours of hits, headlines and hurrahs with all the usual features: forgotten and half-remembered hits, three tracks from a featured album, a review of the day’s events, a sneaky look at the Polish top 20 and the top five singles in full. Which future alt-rock star was enjoying her first top 40 hit this week? Who thought a mashup of Queen and Simple Minds would be a good idea? And which band suffered an unfortunate Spinal Tap moment when their drummer fell asleep with gum in his mouth? Hit PLAY and find out! (Cake not included.)
