As well as a weekly radio show, Off The Chart also exists in easy to swallow podcast form, for those of you who don’t have time for the full show or just don’t like music very much.
Every week on the podcast Steve and Julian talk about some of the new entries in the chart featured in the corresponding week’s radio show, as well as the top twenty rundown and a look at the album chart. You also get the Occurrences, TV & Radio, Gigs and International Chart straight from the radio version. It’s an ’80s chart show with no music!
15 September 1986
We’re shining a torch into the ear of 1986 this week as we revisit this day 34 years ago. As always we’ll talk about the UK singles and albums charts, take in the day’s other events, and still find time to talk about Steve’s voodoo chilli, Michael McDonald’s cola bottles and the secret of Jimmy Somerville’s singing voice. It’ll all make sense if you listen.
