Off The Chart: 27 April 1987Tuesday again? Must be time for another edition of Off The Chart! This week we’re going back to this day in 1987 for two hours of forgotten and half-remembered hits, as well as three of the week’s new albums, a look at the day’s events, a quick romp through the Swedish chart and the top five singles in full.

  • Which unwanted accolade did our Eurovision entrant achieve?
  • Who followed three top five albums with one that only reached number 90?
  • And how did Level 42 get involved with Throbbing Gristle?

Tune in and find out!
