Off The Chart: 6 June 1981Summer’s definitely here, so allow Steve and Julian to throw a bucket of cold water over your evening with a trip back to this day in 1987 in Off The Chart! As usual it’s brimming with obscure, neglected and forgotten hits, plus tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s general goings-on, a hit from the Austrian chart and the complete top five floating on the top.

  • Which legendary band had their only week on the UK singles chart this week with a twenty year old record?
  • Who had hits singing for at least three other bands before finally scoring a solo hit?
  • And who had two different singles out that were so similar they were made to share a chart position?

Tune in and find out!
