Off The Chart: 30 May 1986Summer’s here and the time is right for disappearing back to 1986 for this week’s Off The Chart! We’ll have the usual mix of forgotten, obscure and neglected hits from this week’s chart, as well as three of the week’s new albums, a round-up of the day’s events, an international chart from a country we’ve never been to before, and of course the top five in full to finish things off.

  • Which one hit wonder claims to have invented the phrase “hip hop”?
  • Which even smaller one hit wonder claims to have DJ’d at the Queen Mother’s 90th birthday party?
  • And who wrote a number one hit before going on to create a successful sitcom?

Tune in and find out!

Listen to Off The Chart on Noisebox Radio at 9pm every Tuesday, with a bonus hour of additional hits from the same chart at 11pm in Off The Chart Too! And don’t forget to tweet along using the hashtag #OffTheChart. If you’re not around, you can hear the show again on Noisebox Radio at 3pm on Saturday, or catch up on Mixcloud after that.
