Off The Chart: 11 May 1989What we’re gonna do right here is go back… back to this day in 1989 for another Off The Chart! Join us for two hours of obscure and forgotten hits, three of the week’s big new albums, a look at what was going on around us, a special international chart of Steve’s choice, and the top five singles in full.

  • Who was enjoying his thirtieth hit single of the decade this week?
  • Who scored their only UK hit two years after beating us at Eurovision?
  • And which album entered the chart this week but took twenty years to reach its peak position?

Tune in and find out!
