Everything else might be cancelled but the show must go on at Off The Chart Towers! We’re here as usual with a look back at this day in 1989, including a brace of less familiar hits, three of the week’s new albums, a look at the day’s events, a jaunt over to the USA to look at their chart, and the top five singles in full.
- Which rock band’s keyboard player changed career and became much more famous than his former band?
- Which pop group’s house album was rejected by their record label, who stuck out a Greatest Hits instead?
- And who resorted to teaming up with Stock, Aitken and Waterman to score their first top five hit in a decade?

Now there’s a podcast too!
For those of you who enjoy the nonsense we talk but don’t have time to listen to the music, we’re now putting the talky bits together into a podcast! In this week’s episode Steve and Julian discuss the time the entire island of Tiree made a record, the band who released 27 singles from their debut album, and Gloria Estefan’s magnetic wheelchair. It’ll all make sense if you listen.
