Off The Chart: 26 November 1988You might notice some product placement on this week’s edition of Off The Chart, but we’ll try to keep it to a minimum. So, on this week’s naughty but nice show we’re heading back to 1988 for two hours of forgotten hits other shows cannot reach, plus tracks from three exceedingly good albums, a look at the day’s super soaraway headlines, and there’s so much more than TV times in this week’s TV and Radio section. Bet you can’t eat three.

  • How did the self-proclaimed “future of rock and roll” come to an ironic end?
  • Which ’80s classic became a top five hit in the UK a year after everywhere else?
  • And which advertising jingle was turned into a refreshing hit single?

Tune in to the show that’s made in Scotland from girders and find out!
