Off The Chart: 4 April 1987Believe it or not Off The Chart has now been running for seven whole years and shows no signs of stopping or getting any better. On this week’s birthday show we drag you back to this day in 1987 for the usual two hours of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits, plus tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a look at the day’s events, a hit from the South African chart, and concluding with the top five in full as always.

  • Whose only solo hit has a title that also appears in the lyrics of his former band’s biggest hit?
  • Which Madonna chart topper was originally written for Michael Jackson?
  • And whose video was banned because it showed someone peeing on Ronald Reagan’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Tune in and find out!
