Off The Chart: 7 February 1989Just a small journey back in time this week on Off The Chart as we alight on 1989 to pick over the carcass of the week’s UK singles chart and play you two hours’ worth of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits. We’ll also have tracks from three new albums, a look at the day’s events, a track from a Peel session broadcast on this day, a hit from the New Zealand chart and the top five singles in full, saints preserve us.

  • Who had seven hit singles that all peaked inside the top seventy but outside the top fifty?
  • Who had his only number one hit guesting on a cover of one of his previous hits?
  • And who did a house remix of a pop cover version of his own original house hit?

Tune in and find out!
