Off The Chart: 3 May 1989Since it’s been a busy Bank Holiday on Noisebox Radio we won’t be going too far back into time on this week’s Off The Chart, just the 33 years to revisit this day in 1989! Join us for the usual complement of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, three of the week’s new albums, a look at the day’s events, a quick jaunt to France to look at their top ten, and the UK’s top five in full to conclude.

  • Whose UK singles chart career consists of two number 100 hits seven years apart?
  • Whose biggest solo UK hit was written about a ’70s one hit wonder?
  • And which former backing musicians got remixed by their erstwhile frontman?

Tune in and find out!
