Join us for another Off The Chart as we go back to this day in 1989! It’s two hours long, enough to get you at least halfway to Durham from most parts of the UK, accompanied by the usual complement of forgotten hits, the day’s events, three of the week’s new albums, a sneaky look at the Australian chart, and the top five singles in full.
- Which band’s first ever hit also returned a ’60s star to the chart for the first time in 25 years?
- Who successfully followed another band’s instructions on how to have a number one hit?
- And which Motown legend modernised her sound and was rewarded with the least successful album of her entire career?
Tune in and find out!

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’ve put the talky bits together with some exclusive extras to make a podcast! This week’s podcast looks at the day’s hits and events as usual, while involving singles you could wear as jewellery, the perils of pop groups adopting house music, and Bryan Ferry causing an environmental disaster. It’ll all make sense if you listen.
