Off The Chart: 29 November 1989Whether or not the football is finished on time, we’ll be here as usual with Off The Chart! This week we’re going back to this day in 1989, with the usual two hours of obscure, neglected and forgotten hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s events, a hit from the Italian chart and the top five in full, saints preserve us.

  • Which of this week’s new albums became the biggest selling album of next year?
  • What became the biggest hit single from an album released eleven years earlier?
  • And which Italian rock legend turned down the chance to front a band of British rock legends?

Tune in and find out!
