1987 Festive Fifty


In 1976, BBC Radio One Icon John Peel created a music chart called the Festive Fifty. From 1982 the chart only consisted of the year’s top tracks chosen by the listeners. It would traditionally broadcast over Christmas Eve and Day.

This year saw the chart debut Peel favourite, The Wedding Present, along with The Fall and The Sugarcubes. The album cover is a photograph entitled “South Korea Protest” (1987) by Anthony Suau. Some tracks were removed because of 8tracks’ two tracks per artist policy.
