1988 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 Pixies debut album hit the charts, with Where Is My Mind? only reaching number 30. The album cover is a photograph entitled “Uncle Charlie and his girlfriend” (1988) by Marc Asnin. Some tracks were removed because of 8tracks’ two tracks per artist or album policy.
