Off The Chart: 16 May 1988Here we are again at the start of a new dexy, which means we’re sizing up 1988 on this week’s Off The Chart! As usual we’ll have two hours of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits from the week’s singles chart, plus tracks from three new albums, a round-up of what was going on around us, a track from a Peel session broadcast that day, a hit from the Belgian chart and the UK’s top five in full to conclude.

  • Whose second hit was a Prince collaboration that was less successful than her self-penned first hit?
  • Whose two top forty hits both reached number 16?
  • And which band’s singer starred in the most successful Flemish movie ever?

Tune in and find out!
