Off The Chart: 20 August 1989Before summer fizzles out, join Steve and Julian for a special edition of Off The Chart Gold from (a studio somewhere in a 20 mile radius of) North Berwick beach! They’ll be looking at the UK singles chart from this week in 1989 with all the usual features including a brace of forgotten and half-remembered hits, tracks from three of the week’s new albums, an international hit, a look at the day’s events and the top five singles in full.

  • Which pop superstar was languishing outside the top fifty with a song that would reach number one a year later?
  • Which rock legend was enjoying his biggest hit single and album in sixteen years?
  • And which top ten hit single was also a new entry on this week’s album chart?

Tune in and find out!
