Off The Chart: 6 August 1987While Steve and Julian slowly reawaken from their summer holiday, there’s another edition of Off The Chart Gold this week, taking us back to 1987! As always we’ll be playing some forgotten and half-remembered hits from the week’s UK singles chart, as well as tracks from three of the week’s new albums, a hit from the Australian chart and the top five singles in full.

  • Who was enjoying his only top 40 hit as a solo artist after scoring 25 as lead singer of a band?
  • Whose new video was so raunchy it was banned from kids’ TV by Timmy Mallett?
  • And whose hit duet was turned down by both Barbra Streisand and Whitney Houston?

Tune in and find out!
