No sooner have we finished one dexy with our 350th show last week than we begin again, going back to 1988 on this week’s Off The Chart! We’ll have the usual mix of obscure, forgotten and neglected hits from the week’s chart, as well as three new entries from the album chart, a round up of news and entertainment, a quick look at the French chart and the UK’s top five in full.
- Who sampled his own alarm clock for his first hit single?
- Who forced himself to talk to a prostitute in order to write a song?
- And who set a world record with help from Steve Wright?
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!
