Off The Chart: 24 January 1987“1987 – What The F*** Is Going On?” asked the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu. Unfortunately we can’t play them on Off The Chart because they weren’t in the chart this week in 1987, but we can promise you the usual two hours’ worth of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, along with three of the week’s new-ish albums, a round-up of the day’s goings-on, a trip to Canada to look at their chart, and back home for the top five in full.

  • Which album caused a recently reunited band to break up again?
  • Which library music legend had a hit with a cover he recorded almost two decades earlier?
  • And which single got to number one by mistake?

Tune in and find out!
