Off The Chart: 6 September 1987We’re back, back back with an all new edition of Off The Chart! Steve and Julian are vaguely refreshed and reasonably ready to go with two hours of hits, headlines and hysteria from 1987, including the usual brace of unfamiliar hits, three of the week’s new albums, the Arthur Dent Moment, a round-up of the day’s events, a look at the Japanese chart and an Exciting New Feature™, concluding with the top five in full as always.

  • Whose biggest hit in six years went without credit?
  • Whose first two hits reached number 1 and number 2, seven years apart?
  • And which hit was later covered by an act that was one place higher than the original in this week’s chart?

Tune in and find out!
